Strange Collections On Display At This Underground New York Museum

If you’re looking for a different kind of New York Museum, I can tell you where to find it.

Museum is a 60-square-foot repository that is situated in an abandoned Tribeca freight elevator in Cortlandt Alley (between Franklin and White streets). I opened exactly a year ago and has recently reopened with new showcases for patrons to admire.

The new exhibits include a collection of objects donated by hobbyists. Permanent displays include the shoe that was thrown at President George W. Bush, but really the Museum prides itself on swapping in new and temporary displays to admire (only adding to its hip nature and relevance). This year, you will be able to see prison items that are curated by Baron von Fancy and items collected by Screw Magazine founder Al Goldstein. During off-hours, Museum visitors will still be able to see the exhibits that are available, but must use peepholes.
