Category: Collections & Museums

This section is devoted to collections and museums of ordinary things. If you have  a collection or museum to suggest for this section, please contact us using our Contact Us Form or our Contact Us Email Address.

Collections often grow into museums and there are now two types of museums: the original bricks-and-mortar museums and the new cyberspace museums. Moreover, now the collectors and bricks-and-mortar museums have websites. We combine all of these, organized in categories based on the types of items displayed, in this section.
