This small museum is hidden on the edge of the Tribeca neighborhood in Manhattan, New York. The abandoned freight elevator space aptly called 'Museum' is only 80 square feet and concealed by a pair of heavy, unmarked iron doors. Only open on the weekends, the Museum features edgy exhibits that can be seen through windows 24/7.

While this unconventional small museum is intentionally difficult to locate, many of its contents are also easy to look over. Photographer Garrett Ziegler captured many of the found objects, humorous vintage items and urban curiosities on display at the time. The exhibits change often and the pieces pictured are no longer there. If one is interested in a particular selection, you can enter the item's identification number to inquire further.
