Upping Your Cultural Institutions Per Capita

Driving through Iowa and Nebraska I’ve seen many weird museum signs off the freeway. “The African-American Museum” or the “Dutch Immigrant Museum”. Dozens like these — totally random and general.

I have no idea what these museums are like but I suspect they are attempts by the state to increase the museums-per-capita ranking.
