Many may not consider the Metropolis II installation as art, not to mention worthy of setting shop in a museum. However, I'm sure there are many little boys out there who would disagree. A gigantic toy track, it is fully automatic and features 1,200 cars and 13 trains.

Created by Chris Burden, the Metropolis II installation currently resides at the Los Angeles County Museum of Art. So if you're in the area, you may just hear the zipping of these tiny vehicles.
