This quirky institution houses all sorts of New York City ephemera, from old postcards featuring the Statue of Liberty to a vintage subway turnstile, as well as permanent exhibits on the history of burlesque in NYC and the 1939 World's Fair. The museum is also an active presence in the community, organizing special events (like a bike parade) and fund-raisers.

It was okay. I feel like I would've gotten more out of it if there had been a tour of some kind. Stopped in on a Saturday and took in all the little curious they have. A very small 2 room museum, cute and somewhat interesting. Lots of weird stuff like a collection of pencil sharpeners, artifacts from the World's Fairs and a petrified wedding cake.
