The World Famous Crochet Museum

I know, right? Why didn’t we come up with this idea? I seriously need to work on my “world famous” art. What world famous thing could I create?

The World Famous Crochet Museum was created in 2006 by the artist Shari Elf and is located in the town of Joshua Tree in California, just opposite the Joshua Tree National Park Visitor Center. I recommend to stop by on your way to the park.

The museum is a former drive-through photo kiosk and 2 people can fit inside at any one time. The shelves are full of an eclectic selection of crochet animals, foods, and other things – the Belgian Waffles are my favorite.

Shari Elf doesn’t crochet herself, but rather curates items she finds on eBay or are donated to her museum.

While visiting the World Famous Crochet Museum, also stop by the Art Queen Gallery and the Beauty Bubble Salon.
