Welcome to the Museum of Natural & Artificial Ephemerata (MNAE), where you have been all along! We are one of the few remaining in-home, family-run museums in America. Our mission is to preserve endangered modes of collection, to offer a venue where the public can share objects and their stories, and to contemplate diverse processes of collecting.

We are currently closed for renovations. We will reopen in Spring 2015. Meanwhile, enjoy our galleries of past themed exhibitions! We welcome correspondence at mnae@mnae.org.

We rely on donations to keep our in-home museum open. You can make a suggested donation for a souvenir, or make a PayPal donation through the link below. THANKS!
