1. Leila’s Hair Museum

Though it may make many of us squeamish today, during the Victorian period jewelry made with hair was quite popular. Owner Leila Cohoon started the Independence, Missouri museum out of her personal collection, which now boasts over 2,000 pieces. Among the collection are pieces made out of Queen Victoria herself, as well as contemporary celebrities and four U.S. presidents.
