This just in from Reddit, an American public museum called the Museum of the Coastal Bend has started accepting Bitcoin for donations, admissions, and at their gift store. Personally, I am surprised that an American museum is the first place that such an innovation would occur and I hope for many copycats around the world shortly. If you check the wallet, it seems that they have had four visitors/donations in the past day.
I first saw this story on Reddit and found more information in a Google search.
Yesterday, /u/mcbcurator announced on Reddit that the Museum of the Coastal Bend in Victoria, TX is the first public museum to accept Bitcoin. A little digging reveals that /u/mcbcurator is in fact one Eric Ray: the Curator at the Museum of the Coastal Bend in Victoria, TX.
