A brave little museum that dares to reveal the truth about everything. The museum was the brainchild of former computer engineer Tom Bowden. He says the idea traces back to his childhood, when the circus came to town, displaying what was said to be the mummified body of John Wilkes Booth — the man who shot President Abraham Lincoln. The memory of that exhibit lingered, and Bowden eventually got sucked into the world of conspiratorial history.
