Even though how much we deny it, there's a hole in our subconscious that tells us to look for the wonderfully weird items and events that could give us some fresh perspectives in our lives. One way to satisfy our inkling for the oddities is to visit museums that cater to them. Here are some to eccentric exhibitions to see and will open in 2017.

The Traveling Museum of the Paranormal & Occult. While some odd museums only require you to look, this museum would encourage you to hold these artifacts! The people behind the scene are Greg Newkirk and Dana Matthews, curators of the Traveling Museum. They consider themselves as professional paranormal chasers over the years and would like to invite you to see a perturbing doll, a crying mirror and a cursed testament. For doubters, try to see them for yourselves.

Cumberland Pencil Museum. It's not odd, but perhaps it may be for the majority. Why would someone put a pencil on a pedestal for the world to see? For something so mundane and ordinary? But for artists out there, it will be something to drool on if it features pencils for fine arts. The museum is currently closed but will be rescheduled for opening on early 2017.

The Amazing World of Dr. Seuss Museum. "How did it get so late so soon? It's night before it's afternoon. December is here before it's June. My goodness how the time has flewn. How did it get so late so soon?" But trust us, it'll be coming in June 2017. For children's books enthusiasts and writers and artists alike, who wouldn't be excited for the opening of Ted Geisel's studio? Or witness an exhibition about the making of the Dr. Seuss National Memorial Sculpture Garden and other memorabilia. Cat in the Hat, The Grinch, The Lorax. C'mon, it's childhood in its finest!
