14 of the weirdest museums in Canada


Trekcetera Museum, Vulcan, Alberta

Although Vulcan, Alberta, wasn’t actually named after Spock’s home planet on Star Trek, that hasn’t stopped the town from capitalizing on its appeal to Trekkers across the globe. (Where else in the world is the tourism information station housed in a spaceship?) Vulcan is home to Canada’s first and only Star Trek museum, which opened in 2013 and features–what else–Star Trek memorabilia, along with costumes and props from movies and TV shows like Harry Potter, Thunderbirds, Superman, and more. If you’re in the area in July 2016, check out Vul-Con, a Star Trek convention which, this year, will celebrate the series’ 50th anniversary.
