Regarding the experience
What can I expect from the Museum of Failure?
For every iPhone, VHS, or Ford Mustang that succeeds in the open market, there are always a few Newtons, Betamax tapes, or Edsels that crash and burn for all to see. The Museum of Failure celebrates these spectacular flops with a collection of over 130 plus items.If large corporations with unlimited funding, teams of innovators, and marketing experts can screw up, then it’s OK if we all make the occasional mistake… as long as we learn from it!
