Who knew that there was so much variety in pigeons? They have a very good video on pigeons, interesting artifacts from pigeon fanciers the world over, including Queen Elizabeth, and racing memorabilia.

I enjoyed this small museum, which focuses on the history of messenger pigeons. While it is off the beaten path, it is worth a visit.
