Suilmanns Museum

Wabasha, Minnesota

118 E. Hiawatha Dr., Wabasha, MN (dismantled 2002)

For many years, Joe Suilmann kept a tiny but crowded museum in a garage behind his house. If he was home, and you had a quarter, he'd lead you on a personal tour of the museum, stuffed to the rafters with items that he'd collected over his long life.

Passing the farm implements and salvaged building materials along the sidewalk, we approach the entrance to the museum. But first there are numerous small grotto-like constructions of concrete and broken crockery.
