Take a step back in time with a visit to Beatnik Bob’s; a tribute to the carnival midway. Artist Bill Christman has compiled a nostalgic collection of curiosities, games, signs and ephemera inspired by the beatnik era of the 1950’s. Learn the history of “Corn Dogs through the Ages” or the secrets of the Neosho Nougat Factory. Stop off at the “Shrine of Shameless Hucksterism” for a corn dog, soda, or snack, or drop a quarter into one of the playable vintage pinball machines. And don’t forget to look for the World’s Largest Underwear- though at 7 feet tall, you can’t miss them!
Please be advised Beatnik Bob’s does not keep the same hours as the museum and may close earlier on weekend evenings.
