The smallest museum in New York City is in an elevator shaft on Cortlandt Alley


You'd never find it otherwise, so we're letting you know the smallest museum in New York City is in an elevator shaft on Cortlandt Alley. It's called 'Mmuseumm' and it's actually two separate installations. Each feature items normally overlooked by people during their daily lives.

This is the seventh season of the 'Mmuseumm', and preparations for next year have already begun.

One item is the 'Taxonomy of Cornflakes,' a portrayal of individually encapsulated cornflakes. The artist realized that, just like snowflakes, no two cornflakes are the same.

The elevator shaft space is quite small, allowing only three to four people at a time. The museum is free, but a $5 donation is suggested. Each shelf of the museum houses a different exhibit. You can listen to Information about each by calling the number above them.

A recent exhibit, 'Sara Berman's Closet', can currently be seen at the Metropolitan Museum of Art.

Museum of Broken Relationships turns heartbreak into art

Heartbreak, lost love and the relics left behind. Items without monetary value, yet full of emotional weight... things like belly button lint, an old dinosaur piñata or an ordinary coffee maker. It's the letter attached to these items, the letter containing the backstory of each submission makes the item special, that creates art.
