Well, are they?

On a related note, the Field Museum won the title of “America’s Best Restroom” this past fall. Coincidence?

  1. Reminds me of Steve Martin’s quote “saw the turd museum….and they had a lot of interesting sh** there….I guess some of that crap is worth a lot of money too.”

    • I think about the distinctions between personal taste (e.g. something’s “crap” because I don’t like it/understand it) and the basic truth that museums will almost always have some junk. I’m inspired by institutions that make a concerted effort to weed the junk out.
