  • This place is right before entering the Salton Sea Recreation area. The hours say it opens at 11:30am but the owner didn't show up until 1pm. We showed up at 11:30 am and just returned on our way back...  more »
  • This is off the beaten track! If you are near the Salton Sea then definitely stop....it will make you smile seeing everything banana. It's easy to miss just two shops off the road. It is a very small ...  more »
  • This is a fun place to stop if you’re driving by. $1 entry or buy something. We found the ice cream lacked flavor, I can’t recommend it. Buy something else.  more »

  • Per their sign "The most A-peeling place in the world". This place though, is actually in a great location. Admission is $1 per person, but the fee is waived if something worth $1 is purchased. Cash is King here. It makes it much easier to purchase unless you're planning on buying more than $5-10 worth of items. Any less than that it's not worth the CC fees. Homemade banana ice cream is perfect on a hot day here, which is pretty much 365/365 days out of the year. Everything banana related is here from Pulp Fiction UCSC Banana Slugs toys and photos to a raggae themed banana joint ashtray. Whatever you're thinking they got it. Only thing I did not see was a Banana Bread. Go figure. Drop by this place if you're in the area you won't regret it. Oh, FYI...don't park on the left of the side of the banana store (the liquor store). They don't seem to like it much.
  • As promised, there is a LOT of banana stuff. So much. They were very nice and appropriately nutty. Third time driving past I had to check it out.
  • Awesome always stop by on the way to wister. Stop next door at skips for ice and beers. Banana museum offers a good bunch of stuff. My daughter and girlfriend are addicted to the banana shake. Owners are awesome and ask away. Fkcagov.
  • I'm bananas about this place, it's so appealing. I got a great banana shake. The place place is crazy full of banana propaganda. The lady behind the counter straight banana crazy
  • I had a great time visiting with my brother. We were trying to think of a place to go and he just threw out International Banana Museum. I was like...huh? And he was like yeah The International Banana Museum. You’ve never been?! He had read about it and had wanted to go someday. We’ll we drove two hours and saw it. It was a unique experience. So many banana items and they made me THE BEST BANANA MILKSHAKE I’ve ever had. Yeah...now I can say I’ve been to the International Banana Museum next time I’m asked have you ever been? Also I can honestly say now I had the best banana milkshake in my life. The daughter was very friendly and told us all about bananas. I would recommend checking it out!
