There's A Museum In LA That's Dedicated To Products That Failed—And We Can See Why 😖 

By Alex Maxx

Sometimes we dream up a concept and it doesn't live up to expectations. Or it doesn't evolve and progress, and therefore can't keep up with the changing times. Some might call these failures – but as we've all heard, one man's trash is another man's treasure. 

What if we told you that you can go and marvel at all of these failed concepts in once place? Perhaps a bit of nostalgia with things like Pepsi Crystal or Blockbuster? Unbeknownst to most people, including us until now, there is an entire museum dedicated to failed concepts like these. The Museum of Failure in Los Angeles, California, features a wide array of failure from around and the world – and no, that doesn't include our past relationships.

Among the sea of failed efforts are Google Glass, gendered writing utensils, and even a board game featuring President Donald Trump. 

There is a method to this madness. Curator Samuel West decided to open up this museum for more than entertainment value. 

West hopes the museum will help people embrace that failure is a normal and necessary part of innovation.
