New York City Is Getting A New Pop Culture Museum
The co-founder of Microsoft is looking to open a New York City location of the Museum of Pop Culture.

According to sources, the plans for a New York branch of the Seattle-based Museum of Pop Culture will occupy a roughly 100,000-square-foot space that is currently the home to the New York Public Library’s Science, Industry and Business Library located on Madison Ave.

The current Museum of Pop Culture opened in Seattle almost twenty years ago and according to museum representatives, a move into New York is the “natural evolution of the brand.” At the moment, proposals for the development of the museum space are slated in the nine-figure range.

The museum currently focuses on a range of interesting pop culture hits like, Marvel comics, rock and roll, and horror films. The new outlet of the museum is set to open within the next four years and will be run as a non-profit, most likely with a strong focus on exhibits tailored to New York popular culture in particular.
