'City of the Arts' boasts Musee du Towelette Humide

WKAR/Joe Linstroth

Every year, thousands of people from around the state and elsewhere visit a museum in the Lansing area: the state of Michigan Historical Museum downtown perhaps, or the dynamic new Broad Art Museum in East Lansing are two that come to mind. Not long ago, Current State learned of a museum tucked away in East Lansing that you may not have heard of. It’s collection may not get the attention the Broad does, but it’s safe to say it occupies a unique niche here in mid-Michigan.

The curator of East Lansing’s Moist Towelette Museum, John French, says the museum has moist towelettes from all over the world, with the exception of Antarctica.
