The Newly Opened ‘Museum Of Failure’ In Sweden.

CNN coverage. Google for this and many more.


Clever and I wish it was closer, like in New York or Boston. I hope it is better than the ‘Sex Museum‘ in New York — which shouldn’t, in reality, be too hard.

Right now, newly opened, it does look a bit limited — essentially focusing on some fairly well known product flops, such as Sony’s Betamax (though I was a fan of Betamax and used it for years in the UK because of its superior image quality).

I hope they set out to really showcase failure in all of its myriad, delightful flavors and textures. They should even have a picture of ME!

I will keep an ear to the ground to see what I hear about this endeavor. It would be ironic IF it turned out to be a failure.

One of my manifold foibles is that I am an unashamed museum junkie. I will gladly tour any and all museums. My favorite destination in any city that I visit — and has been for most of my life, starting quite young.

Yes, I have also been rather lucky. I have visited the Hermitage (in Leningrad/St. Petersburg), the Louvre (over 40 times), the d’Orsay (the week that it opened), the Getty (in its first year) — not to mention museums in Amsterdam, Denmark, Belgium, Albany, Chicago, NY, D.C., Boston, Manchester, Colombo, Male, London etc. etc.

I heard about this unique, the first (and only) of its kind Math Museum in New York on a Sunday morning TV show, while I was brushing my teeth. I knew at once that we had to go. So we might have to make a trip to NY this Summer just to visit the museum. We haven’t been to NYC since April of 2011 — so it is time. I am a great believer that one must visit NYC at least once a year to see how the rest of the world lives.

I am also rather partial to math. One of my regrets was that I was never good at the esoteric stuff. Yes, I did calculus, applied mathematics, pure mathematics and even analogue computing at College level — both for my B.Sc. and M.Sc. But, I knew I had hit my ceiling. I have been privileged to be associated with some true, genuine, bona fide math genii. I dedicated my latest Kindle book to one of them:

I even had a few such genii working for me! One of them, was a New Zealander with a Ph.D., in pure mathematics, from Cambridge. I would tell him daily that I was embarrassed to be his boss, because intellectually I was a dwarf compared to him. We hooked up recently on LinkedIn. He, as it should be, is now a Professor of Mathematics — rather than working in IT. He told me recently that I was the best boss he ever had. That made my day.

Anyway, this is on my list. Devanee will probably freak out since she doesn’t like math, though she claims she does.


Deanna and I visited this museum, shortly after it was open, c. 2003 – 2004. It was flaccid. There was no titillation of any sort. They had to have improved it since.
