The International Museum of Dinnerware Design was established in 2012 in Ann Arbor, Michigan.  [It is] a charitable 501(c)(3) organization holding pop-up exhibitions until [they] get a bricks and mortar facility.  The International Museum of Dinnerware Design has a curated collection of over 7000 objects. 

The International Museum of Dinnerware Design collects, preserves, and celebrates masterpieces of the tabletop genre created by leading artists and designers worldwide. Through its collections, exhibitions, and educational programming, it provides a window on the varied cultural and societal attitudes toward food and dining and commemorates the objects that exalt and venerate the dining experience.
