Los Angeles, California: the tiny: a Tiny Museum

A street side display case outside a private home. Rotating exhibits, and in the "gift shop" (a cigar box) are Pet Rocks for adoption.

706 Burwood Terrace, Los Angeles, CA
In a residential neighborhood. From N. Figueroa St. turn east onto Burwood Ave. After it veers left, stay straight onto Burwood Terrace (not Burwood Ave.). You'll quickly see the display case on the right, just past the first garage.
Donations welcome.

the tiny

A tiny museum is built into a display case outside a home. Features at least one exhibit at a time, and a "gift shop" where one can adopt a pet rock, all of whom are named Dwayne. The neighborhood responded to this joke, so now there are frequently other pets available for adoption: Iras (glass), Billys (crystals), Roberts (plants), Lucilles (balls), etc. Very fun.

[Naama Haviv, 10/30/2020]

Curated by local resident Naama Haviv, who was inspired when she saw an empty display case curbside. The museum opened on July 3rd.
