Mount Vernon Museum of Incandescent Lighting

While the Mount Vernon Museum of Incandescent Lighting closed in 2002 after the death of its creator, some of the rare bulbs can still be visited in Baltimore.

The late Dr. Hick's collection -- part of it, anyway -- is still prominently displayed in the Baltimore Museum of Industry, in a couple of cases right next to the entrance. Not all of the late doctor's vast collection can be exhibited, but those on display include the 50,000-watter and the Himmler headlight.
