The International Banana Museum (of the Salton City Ghost Town)

18th Dec, 2012

As bizarre, off-beat and kitsch as they come is the International Banana Museum, boasting the largest collection of banana paraphernalia in the world. Even more inexplicable than the museum itself (and Fred “Banana Mon” Garbutt’s obsession with bananas), is the location. Occupying a squat building along the toxic shores of the Salton Sea ‘riviera’, a once thriving paradise resort and now an eerie ghost town, it’s possible Fred might have been sampling too much of the local drinking water…

Check out the Cool Hunting video, you might find it quite a-peeling. See what I did there?! I know, hilarious.
