One Golden Bend house that's open to the public is this offbeat museum, devoted to, of all things, the feline presence in art. It was founded by wealthy financier Bob Meijer in memory of his red tomcat John Pierpont Morgan III. Among the artists, Swiss-born Theopile-Alexandre Steinlen (1859–1923) figures prominently. There's also a small Rembrandt etching (a Madonna and child with a cat and snake) and Picasso's Le Chat .

You may get the chance to admire the collection along with the cats that live in the building.
