Mmuseumm is a modern natural history museum located in lower Manhattan in New York City, dedicated to its signature curatorial style of "Object Journalism."[1]


The Mmuseumm was founded by Alex Kalman[2][3] and the Safdie brothers.[4][5] Its first two locations are on Cortlandt Alley between Franklin Street and White Street, sometimes known as Mmuseumm Alley.[6] Mmuseumm is dedicated to the curation and exhibition of contemporary artifacts[7] to illustrate the modern world. Mmuseumm's first wing, Mmuseumm 1, opened in 2012 in a former elevator shaft. The second wing, Mmuseumm 2, opened in 2015 three doors down. The museum is accessible 24 hours a day via peepholes in its door.[8]
