Museum of American Finance?

Not exactly on my list of "must sees" but interesting nonetheless because it points out one of the most fundamental concepts of art: beauty (or interest) is in the eye of the beholder.

I give the museum credit, grudgingly, because they were supported by big companies that got greedy and they lost some of that corporate sponsorship in the current credit crisis. They then had the courage to document and display some of the problems that led to the crisis. Maybe it's biting the hand that feeds them, but I have to give them credit for being true to their mission. (And I apologize for the pun. Sincerely.)
