The Faux Museum

A conceptual art museum billed as the oldest museum in the world. It is also home of the only remaining woolly ant. The museum has a 10,000 year history and an exhibit hall full of "sound pods."

[Tom Richards, 06/28/2013]

A gallery, a store... a museum. Sometimes one can get a little TOO high concept, but it's art so whatever.
