One of a few bastions of true roadside Americana, Mister Ed's Elephant Museum is quirky to say the least. While you won't spend a whole day here, it's worth a short drive from nearby Gettysburg or Chambersburg to spend 30 minutes or so. And the best part: it's free.

You will be utterly amazed by Mister Ed's collection. There are two rooms stuffed from top to bottom with everything elephant - posters, plush toys, figurines, handmade items, and advertising. There are even two large elephants outside; one talks and sings to visitors.

Also part of the attraction is the multi-room gift shop, featuring fresh roasted peanuts, homemade candies, old fashioned and specialty candies, and tons of different animal collectibles and toys - elephants included.
