The ruby slippers, Madonna's bra, and Einstein's brain: the locations of America's pop culture artifacts
Anyone who has ever wondered where Dorothy's ruby slippers, the limo that JFK was riding in when he was assassinated, or Michael Jackson’s sequined glove are housed will have their curiosity satisfied in this journey to locate hundreds of items from America's pop culture past. From such major institutions as the Smithsonian and the Basketball Hall of Fame to offbeat collections in the Sing Sing Prison Museum and the Museum of Pez Memorabilia, these pop culture treasures include the most famous—and quirkiest—items from American movies, crime, TV, sports, and history. Among the included artifacts are George Washington's wooden teeth, the Merry Prankster bus, the piano from Casablanca, Bonnie and Clyde's death car, Jack Ruby's .38 Colt Cobra, and John Wilkes Booth's thorax.
