- Ontario is famous for many things: the world’s tallest free-standing structure, the world’s longest street, and the world's biggest skating rink. But how many people know Ontario also houses North America’s only shoe museum? The world's only museum of contraception? A museum of North American black history? North America’s smallest jailhouse and church? Lesbian and gay archives? Possibly the world’s largest collection of children’s books? And that’s just the tip of the iceberg! Ontario is a virtual goldmine of over 300 bizarre, unusual, unique, educational, beautiful, and fascinating museums, archives, and historic houses ranging from the crassly commercial to the exquisite and rare. Ontario’s Amazing Museums is a fun, comprehensive, and illustrated guide to this incredible hidden community.
