On August 22, 2007 McDonald’s opened the Big Mac Museum in North Huntingdon, Pennsylvania to celebrate the Big Mac’s 40th anniversary. The museum features the world's largest Big Mac statue (measuring 14 feet high and 12 feet wide), and has hundreds of historic artifacts and exhibits that celebrate the Big Mac.
The decision to place the museum in North Huntingdon was to the disappointment of some Uniontown, Pennsylvania residents. According to a McDonald’s spokesperson the decision was based on logistics and access, but it still did not sit well with some residents and an article was published in Uniontown’s local newspaper, The Herald-Standard.

Famous quotes containing the word museum:
“To look at and properly appreciate the British Museum is the work of a lifetime.”
—M. E. W. Sherwood (18261903)
“When I go into a museum and see the mummies wrapped in their linen bandages, I see that the lives of men began to need reform as long ago as when they walked the earth. I come out into the streets, and meet men who declare that the time is near at hand for the redemption of the race. But as men lived in Thebes, so do they live in Dunstable today.”
—Henry David Thoreau (18171862)
“The Museum is not meant either for the wanderer to see by accident or for the pilgrim to see with awe. It is meant for the mere slave of a routine of self-education to stuff himself with every sort of incongruous intellectual food in one indigestible meal.”
—Gilbert Keith Chesterton (18741936)
