Typeface Museums?

I'd like to start a topic about museums dedicated to typefaces.
Many typeface museums were originally foundries.
Share with us your experience and opinion of such museums.
Let's draw a map of these establishments.

1. Which typeface museums do you recommend from your perspective?
2. What are the must-see in that field?

My son, a recent transplant to Portland OR, alerted his type-geek dad to the C.C. Stern Type Foundry, a volunteer-run working museum, offering public programs to preserve the craft of type casting, and to educate and inspire a new generation of printers and students of printing history.

Here are some photos he took at their open house on March 26, 2011:

Hi there,

Can anyone suggest a typeface for a Football (Soccer) Museum Logo? It will be an "interactive" or hands-on museum all about football history, players, etc. from all over the world.

Thanks!

I'm currently building my portfolio up to apply at some art and design schools so I decided to create an identity for a fictional museum of art based in Mexico. I am now debating on the logo and have created several versions:

2. http://droplr.com/4yB6u+

And I have now pretty much started over and come up with this (also attached):
