Behind the Scenes at the Museum of Baked Beans
My Search for Britain's Maddest MuseumsLarge Print - 2011
Driven by his own passion for collecting, Hunter Davies packed his notepad and set off in search of Britain's maddest museums. He explores these hidden gems and soon discovers that they are everywhere and that they celebrate just about everything, from lawnmowers in Southport to pencils in Kewick. 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 put them together. Whether they're a man who loves Heinz so much he's changed his name to Captain Beany or a kleptomaniac Vintage Radio buff, these eccentric collectors are Britain's finest. Once you discover these museums Great Britain won't look quite the same again...
