What is a pop-up museum?

A pop-up museum is a temporary exhibit made up of objects brought in and shared by people just like you! When you participate in a pop-up museum, you are invited to bring in an object that connects with the given theme, sort of like show and tell.  At the pop-up museum, you can create a label for your object and talk to others about what it represents and why it is meaningful to you.  At the end of the night, everyone takes their objects (and their labels, if they’d like) home with them.

What can I bring?

Anything! No, really, you can bring anything that you believe represents the theme of the pop-up museum. This could be a photo, a drawing, a book, a board game, a blanket, a sculpture… absolutely anything!

Although we won’t tell you what object to bring, there are some rules as to what we can allow:

  • No weapons or objects that look like real weapons
  • Nothing bigger than what you or a friend can carry (we won’t be able to help you get your object in the building)
  • We will not be able to supply power or other special accommodations
  • We are not responsible for the safety and wellbeing of your object. You will stay with it the whole time you have it here.
