My favorite I90 spots are the Little Bighorn memorial, for the history, and the Missouri crossing, which is very beautiful.  Most boring state: Minnesota.  I can't think of any roadside highlights there.

The SPAM Museum is not a highlight?  The start of the Mississippi River?

The Spam museum is better in the telling than in the tasting, IMO.

And the mississippi crossing is at the border -- see my LaCrosse comment.  Side note: If you ever take the Amtrak Empire Builder northern route Spokane - Chicago that is the cool Mississippi crossing.  I remember seeing like 50 bald eagles flocking over the river.  That was very cool, but it is in northern Minnesota, not the southern I90 route.
