Kevin deep cleans the boombox, tightens the shears, and points out a critical missing part on another pair of scissors. He deep cleans the HP DeskJet and gets it working with new cartridges.

Joe, John, and James diagnose and restore two solid-state vintage Panasonic radios and a receiver/amp. Joe rewired a table lamp, a space heater, and found a shot motor on a fan.

Charlie, Mike, and Kevin replace the cracked LCD on a OnePlus 1 phone and improvise a new power button.

Mike also performs wire bypass on an electret condenser microphone and an AC adapter for a cable modem. He also diagnoses a table fan's switch.

The paper shredder got no power. We test good UPS batteries but the UPS wasn't supplying power. The Canon printer said "NYAH NYAH" with a 5B00 Service Printer code. The tape deck got its tape stuck inside and had an unusable drive belt. The toaster oven would not close properly.

The XO laptop makes a repeat appearance.

Thanks to Wikimedia NYC for the sweet and savory food!

We knew them when the museum was just a library. As one of the projects-in-residence at Proteus Gowanus we were elated to see the library grow up to become a free-standing institution. We still have stars in our eyes, hoping we can follow their path and example #RIP ... See MoreSee Less

RIP MORBID ANATOMY MUSEUM We regret very much to inform you that the Morbid Anatomy Museum has ceased operations. We are incredibly grateful to the many people--presenters, enthusiasts, teachers, visitors, contributors, collectors, donors, board members and more--who made up this wonderful community dedicated to the celebration of artifacts, histories and ideas that fall between the cracks of high and low culture. We look forward to seeing how our many friends and collaborators will continue to explore their interests now that the Museum has closed. Over the past two and a half years, we have worked hard to create a museum unlike any other, and to support a community that values our distinctive exhibitions, lecture series, and workshops. We are proud of the unique, award winning and critically acclaimed work we have done. Good press, however--as we have learned--does not pay the rent. Our institution was made possible by an incredible investment from our co-founder and a dedicated group of early supporters, but we were sadly unable to develop the broad support from our audience and from grants, gifts, and other sponsorship that is necessary for sustainability. So again, many, many thanks to all of you--our friends, collaborators, and stakeholders--for believing in us, and for your support of so many kinds. We don’t yet know what comes next, but we’ll look forward to seeing you on the other side of this. Love, All of us at The Morbid Anatomy Museum
