Museum of Water.

Our membership department is pleased to introduce another sister institution with reciprocal benefits for our lower-level members. The Museum of Water is “a collection of publicly donated water and accompanying stories.”

The museum boasts more than “700 bottles in the collection, ranging from water from a holy river in India, to a burst London water main, ice from a Sussex field, a melted snowman, 20-year-old evaporated snow from Maine, condensation from a Falmouth window, Hackney rainwater, a new born baby’s bath water, Norwegian spit, three types of wee, two different breaths and water from a bedside table said to be infused with dreams.”

Some of our members maintain that a museum of water makes too much sense to be associated with the Museum of Folly. But our management team finds it hard to resist an institution with these kinds of liquid assets.
