DESCRIPTION

The Main Street Museum is an eclectic display space for material culture and an experiment in a new taxonomy. Originally thought of as an "alternative" museum, the museum's present form and activities resemble the 18th and 19th century "cabinet of curiosities" and point to an interest in the historic roots of museums and museology.

The Museum also focuses on new technology, notably cataloging its collections and conducting online activity through its Wiki.

Recently, the Main Street Museum has opened its doors to more musical, literary, cinematic and performative events, making it a cultural destination for lovers of both live and still art.
