Strange happenings at the Minneapolis Institute of Arts
Back in 1954 the very first museum curator of modern art the Minneapolis Institute of Arts disappeared after boarding a train for Washington, DC. He was never seen again. Barton Kestle was his name. When he was at the museum he spent many long hours working late in the night in a office near the front entrance. When they were doing construction after his disappearance they mistakenly sealed off his office from the outside world. Recently people found the office by mistake and didn't change the vintage office and created a new exhibit. This kind of discovery is extremely lucky and gives people a view into the world from fifty years ago.
