The Museum of Natural History should be at the top of this category simply for housing the Best Haligonian, Gus the gopher tortoise. But there are many other reasons too—extreme affordability, the sweet science sphere, the fact that it hosted a cat show this summer, Snake Gyllenhaal and the current exhibit Strange Things, which has pulled out a bunch of oddities from the collection and assembled them in a creepy manner. A mix of permanent must-sees, events and specials keep you coming back year after year.
