The smallest museum in New York is situated in an abandoned 60-square-foot freight elevator

This very small museum is nestled within TriBeCa in New York. It’s actually built into an abandoned 60-square-foot freight elevator, out of sight to even most of Tribeca’s residents and to those in the know, accessible only via a dark alleyway. Simply called The Museum, it was officially opened in May 2012.

According to its website, the nonprofit museum collects ‘strange artifacts and objects removed from their narratives’. This combination of everyday and esoteric items include a package of melted gummy worms, Disney bulletproof backpack and one black show that was hurled at former USA President George W. Bush. Filmmaker Alex Kalman, one of its three founders, said, ‘They reveal a lot about who we are’.
