'I am fascinated by people turning their daft dreams into a reality. How did they do it and why?'

Driven by his own passion for collecting Hunter Davies has packed his notepad and set off in search of Britain's maddest museums. As he explores these hidden gems he soon discovers that they are everywhere and that they celebrate just about everything, from lawnmowers in Southport to pencils in Keswick. But as Hunter travels up and down the country he comes to realise that it isn't only the collections that are fascinating, it's also the people who have put them together. Whether they're a man who loves his Heinz so much he's changed his name to Captain Beany or a kleptomaniac Vintage Radio buff, these eccentric collectors are Britain's finest and could live in no other country in the world. Once you discover these museums and get to know their curators, Great Britain won't look quite the same again...

    " This could have been a pointless ramble but was both entertaining and informative. "

    " Whimsical ramble around some more or less oddball museums with more or less oddball creators. I enjoyed the look into "the mind of a collector" as well as the descriptions of said museums and creators. "

    " I love museums. From a practical point of view, it was a good blimmin' job I had read The Lawnmower Museum chapter (in Southport if you're interested) before I went as the actual museum has limited information. "

    " I am really loving this book, which describes a bunch of small and quirky museums all over the UK. Lots of fun. "
