Museum—a 60-square-foot repository located in an abandoned Tribeca freight elevator—debuted last May and, after closing to swap out exhibitions, has reopened for its second season. Its collection is a mishmash of found objects and artifacts donated by hobbyists; its permanent holdings include an index card detailing a pot dealer's pricing scale and—allegedly—the shoe that was thrown at President George W. Bush. This season's temporary exhibits include a collection of artifacts from American prisons, curated by Baron von Fancy; a selection of "moon rocks," gathered beneath the Park Avenue Armory during the recent Tom Sachs exhibit "Space Program: Mars"; and a selection of Screw magazine founder Al Goldstein's personal artifacts. During off-hours, curious spectators can peek at the items through peepholes and access its 24/7 audio guide via cell phone.
