It is not clear if the editors are being ironic in that way that hipsters always seem to be striving for, but Complex magazine has listed the Museum of the Confederacy at number eighteen on its list of the fifty coolest museums in the world. Other listees were the Tate Modern, Imperial War Museum, and MFA, Boston.

In all seriousness, it should not be a surprise given the museum’s extensive collection of artifacts and the shift of the museums’s narrative in recent years.
