Pop culture museum to open at Phoenix’s CityNorth

johnedwardsA nonprofit museum dedicated to pop culture paraphernalia is finally opening in the Valley after years of preparation.

The Arizona Popular Culture Museum is opening in northeast Phoenix. According to founder and director John W. Edwards, the site occupies 4,500 square feet in the CityCenter of CityNorth development.

In a 2007 article, Edwards told the Tribune that he wanted the museum to educate children and inspire them to learn about science and technology and to use their imaginations. At one point Chandler, Gilbert and Scottsdale were in discussions to host the nonprofit facility.

Edwards, a Tucson resident, pledged to donate 10,000 action figures, CDs, DVDs and posters for the effort.
