Small but we learned a lot. If your timing is right, Mr Nader may stop by.

The selection is very limited. When we went myself and guest were the only people in there on a Sunday afternoon.

From Our Editors

Where can you find a good lawyer? In a joke, the answer would be "in a cemetery." But at the American Museum of Tort Law, the answer is "in every exhibit." The museum is a repository for some of the most famous or infamous lawsuits in the land. It gives visitors a look behind the bench into the legal arguments and precedents set by landmark cases about hot McDonald's coffee and Big Tobacco.

  • What it covers: hundreds of years of tort law, starting with its roots in English common law
  • Eye catcher: a red Corvair, the basis for museum founder Ralph Nader's book Unsafe at Any Speed
  • Permanent mainstay: Gallery of Toys, a graveyard of dangerous toys and an homage to how tort laws benefit people
  • Don't miss: Shining a Light, an in-depth look at the wrongs that are righted through civil litigation
  • Coming soon: a full-size courtroom where lawyers will re-enact landmark cases for live and webcast audiences
