"One Of The Smallest Museums"

You might not have visited a smaller museum than Hoosesagg in Basel, Switzerland. Framed in a glass window measuring two-by-two-foot in a door, is this tiny museum that exhibits palm size collections varying from toothbrushes to toys. Something that started as a way to avoid peek ins from the tourists, that walk through the narrow pedestrian alley of Imbergasslein, turned into a small museum displaying art and collections. The walking or guided tours would often stop by the house for its historical and notable architecture, hence the owner decided to create a display window to maintain privacy. Now the tourists stop by for the trendy and wonderful exhibitions of pocket-sized collectibles that decorate the display for a month or two. It might be the smallest museum but surely easy to spot.
