Size matters?

Giant sculptures of everyday objects (including this button one here in my home town of Grand Rapids, MI)

I know it's a cliche, but there really is a World's Largest Ball of Twine, and it resides in Darwin, Minnesota.

A Flickr set of exaggerated postcards, found at, which has a traveling roadside museum.

Now when you think about it, the logistics of taking a collection of the world's largest things and shuffling them around the country for display... well, that seems a little daunting. So what's their secret?


That's right, we're talking about a traveling museum featuring miniature representations of the world's largest things! It's The World's Largest Collection of the World's Smallest Versions of the World's Largest Things Traveling Roadside Attraction and Museum! The customized bus contains display space for its unique collection of miniature replicas of things such as badgers, otters, bulls, balls of twine, and baseball bats billed as World's Largest.
