Niche Museums
I love visiting tiny or niche museums. I've started posting one museum I've explored every day to my new website, and I plan to keep doing so for as long as I can find new niche museums to explore. Since there are more than 30,000 museums in just the USA I'm hoping this will keep me going for a very long time. Hit the "Use my location" button to see niche museums I've visited near you!

If you're interested in the technical details about how the site works, I wrote about it on my blog.

I love this, however I can't find your RSS feed. Can you point me to it, or add one if it doesn't exist?

Oh that's a great idea. I started work on an Atom plugin for Datasette a. Lille of months about but didn't quite get it working, I should finish that!

I'm still working on the Atom feed (see issue #5) but I do have a Twitter account for the site now: @nichemuseums

OK, the atom feed is now live! It's linked to from the homepage. Here's the datasette-atom plugin I built for it.

This is really cool! Extra thanks for getting the RSS feed together--added to my reader as well.
