WPA Museum
What would a WPA museum look like, and include? 

Obviously, it would be ideal if a WPA museum were housed in a WPA-built structure.  Even a museum constructed in the art deco style of the 1930s would be great.  Of course, funding and availability of buildings can seriously limit options, so these two possibilities might not be feasible.

A WPA museum could possibly have WPA orchestra music playing in some of the rooms  There could also be theater nights, to bring in the community, and the plays could be of the type that the Federal Theater Project produced.  Adorning the walls of the museum could be various WPA art, e.g., posters and murals.
