NEW YORK (AP) — A new museum in New York City is dedicated to the history of barber shops — offering a shave and a haircut alongside its tour.
The Barber Shop Museum on the Upper West Side opened on Friday. Owner Arthur Rubinoff says he designed the museum in memory of his father, who was also a barber.
The museum showcases antiques and artifacts from more than 100 years of barbering, including blades and razors, barber poles, vintage barber signs and a barber chair dating back to 1929.
The museum is free to visit, but grooming services are available for purchase.
