Tiny Pop-Up Museum in New York Freight Elevator

Check out this story from NPR!
Three filmmakers from New York have converted a vacant, unusable freight elevator into a tiny museum. It is simply called "Museum." They collect objects that interest them and display them in this unique space. View their website here.

Pop-up libraries, museums, restaurants, and shops are happening all over the country. They encourage us to view our environments in new ways, and to dream about what treasures our cities can hold.

What space in your city can you convert into a museum?
