One of the few family-run, in-house museums left in the States, the Museum of Natural and Artificial Ephemerata displays Jen and Scott Webel’s collection in a single room stuffed with a minglemangle of objects, from the butt of the last cigarette Marilyn Monroe ever smoked to a bottle of red rain from India to a yeti toy, donated by a female rabbi. At least that’s what the Webels will tell you – how much of it you believe is up to you.
