Visiting New York's Secret Museum

A few weeks ago, we discussed a secret museum in New York that was getting a lot of buzz. For our latest Fiesta Movement mission, we reached out to the founders and asked if we could sneak down for a visit. They let us bring a camera, so today we can show you some of the wild treasures hidden in a Cortlandt Alley freight elevator.

If you're in the New York area, you should definitely plan your own Museum adventure. Check out their website for upcoming events or follow @Mmuseumm on Twitter.

Coming Soon: Behind the Wall of Magic

We've gotten tons of emails about the Wall of Magic on our YouTube set. While I probably could have just emailed the art director who designed it, why not drive from New York to Indianapolis and get the scoop in person? That's exactly what mental_floss co-founder Mangesh Hattikudur and I did for our most recent Fiesta Movement mission. Our video should be up soon!

A week from today, Mangesh and I are hopping in the car and heading west, to Indiana. We're meeting with our YouTube crew in Indianapolis. But the 700 miles between the Big Apple and the Hoosier State (and back) are wide open! We'll be pulling off the highway frequently to say hello and give away mental_floss paraphernalia. If you live between here and there and are up for a quick visit, send us an email ( or leave a comment and convince us to stop by. We'd love to meet you!

We'll be filming some behind-the-scenes stuff out there, too, so for everyone who keeps asking questions about the Cabinet of Curiosities, I'll return with a full report.
