MmuseummFree: All time

Simply named as “Museum”, the location of of this museum is just as inconspicuous as its name. Housed inside the ground floor of an abandoned elevator shaft in a quiet alleyway, the Museum is basically a one-room exhibition space. Behind the rusted metal door, visitors will find a brightly-lit room packed with a collection of unconventional found everyday objects, from potato chips package to toothpaste tubes. The Museum aims to be a modern natural history museum – devoted to the curation and exhibition of contemporary artifacts that illustrate the complexities of the modern world.
