Have you ever visited a tourist attraction thinking it was going to be super cool just to be completely disappointed? You are definitely not alone as there is now a list out of the world's most boring tourist attractions! And two popular attractions right here in Minnesota are on that list.

We have some pretty fantastic tourist attractions like basically all of the North Shore, the Great Minnesota Get Together, the Minneapolis Institute of Art, and so many more. Which attractions are the ones being called boring and why exactly?

Now, Minnesota's attractions didn't make the top 10, but we did have two tourist attractions earning a boring badge.

Here are the top 5:

  1. Branson Scenic Railway in Missouri
  2. Illuminarium in Atlanta, GA
  3. Jurassic Jungle Boat Ride in Tennessee
  4. Salem Witch Museum in Massachusetts
  5. Lego Discovery Center in Atlanta

Some other interesting facts they discovered in their searches: Museums make up 33% of the top 100 most boring attractions! Isn't that crazy? There are four LEGOLAND Discovery Centers in the top 25 and Georgia is the most boring state.
