was going to say 'love the in your face colours' but maybe not appropriate in this caseRonnies Sex Shop - it’s not really a museum per se but it could be considered an exhibition of sorts!
This chap named his cafe/bar to attract tourists. It’s not really a sex shop. And again it’s in the middle of the Karoo with nothing around it.

Looks more like county fair exhibits than a museum, but that's how it is.
PS - Explanation of "Californios" from Wikipedia:
The term Californio (historical, regional Spanish for 'Californian') was originally applied to the Spanish-speaking residents of Las Californias during the periods of Spanish Californiaand Mexican California, between 1683 and 1848. The first Californios were the children of the early Spanish military expeditions into northern reaches of the Californias which established the presidios of California and subsequently allowed for the foundation of the California mission system. Later, the primary cultural focus of the Californio population became the Vaquero tradition practiced by the landed gentry which received land grantscreating the Rancho system. In the 1820s-40s, American and European settlers increasingly came to Mexican California, married Californio women, and became Mexican citizens, learning Spanish and often converting to Catholicism, and are often also considered Californios, for their adherence to Californio language and culture.
