9 New Super-Niche Museums

These public spaces explore British surfing, pizza, neon signs, and other seemingly random but highly specific topics.

The Dinnerware Museum
Where: Ann Arbor, Michigan
Opened: Spring 2013

Though the Museum of Food and Drink (MOFAD) reached its Kickstarter goal and will become a reality someday, right now it's still just an idea. Until then, you'll have to settle for the recently launched Dinnerware Museum, which showcases vintage pieces created from ceramics, glass, metal, paper, plastic, lacquer, fiber, and wood. The curators are keen to incorporate art and pop-culture references, like the high-concept radioactive dish set for those who dine by black light. The organizers are currently looking for a new permanent home in Ann Arbor.
