Now There is a Museum of Coffee Machines

It used to be that museums were exclusively the purview of dinosaur bones and paintings of old rich dudes. Things have changed, however. Nowadays, there are museums for bad art, tap water and even dog collars. Well, you can add coffee machines to that list.

Introducing the Museum of Coffee Machines, located in Milan, Italy. The whole thing is run by Italian coffee machine manufacturer Gruppo Cimbali and features recreations of the kinds of coffee bars that existed through various decades of the 20th century. For caffeine junkies, this could really hit the spot.

So if you ever find yourself in Italy, forget all of those boring cathedrals and sumptuous meals. Go look at some espresso machines instead!
