Smallest Museum


Earlier this week, we wrote about how museums exist for almost anything you can imagine. New York’s newest, and likely smallest, museum embraces this fully – displaying everyday objects that either make you look twice, or have a slightly twisted back-story. All in the venture, (which is simply called, “Museum”) is shown in a freight elevator lined with shelves at the end of an alleyway in Tribeca. By showing things like the oddities left in copy machines, newsstand paper weights, and a global toothpaste collection, the Museum considers the absurd, discarded and quirky remnants of everyday life. More info. here, with a new show opening soon.
