Elevator Shaft Museum in TriBeCa

If you’re looking for a creative way to adapt an old elevator shaft into a new use, consider the example of Alex Kalman’s Mmuseumm, a museum and rotating gallery at 4 Cortlandt Alley in New York’s TriBeCa borough. The museum is unique in that it’s built inside an old elevator shaft. The exhibits within are dedicated to oddities and artifacts which both reveal and unpack the complexities of our modern life, making the location inside the old elevator shaft even more appropriate. The permanent collection includes objects like an electric handheld water boiler, a Honduran treat spoon, a homemade television antenna, and a bag of cheesy poofs from the Middle East. Previous installations in the gallery have displayed homemade weapons of defense, hand modified Russian watches, and collections of stolen objects, among a slew of other bizarre yet compelling catalogues. The museum is currently closed except by appointment, with new installations expected to launch sometime this spring. Take the opportunity to see the inside of an elevator shaft—and perhaps yourself—in a new light by visiting soon.

  1. Thank you for the sensible critique. Me & my neighbor were just preparing to do some research on this.
    We got a grab a book from our local library but I think I learned
    more from this post. I’m very glad to see such great info being
    shared freely out there.

  2. I’m so happy to read this. This is the kind of manual that needs to
    be given and not the random misinformation that’s
    at the other blogs. Appreciate your sharing this best doc.

  3. I not to mention my guys ended up reading the great procedures on the
    blog then suddenly I had a terrible suspicion I never thanked the website owner for
    them. All the guys ended up as a result warmed to read them and have in effect in truth been loving them.
    Many thanks for truly being quite helpful as well
    as for picking this kind of exceptional themes most people are really eager to be
    aware of. Our own honest apologies for not saying thanks
    to sooner.
