Jay Walker's Library
You *must* go see Wired Magazine's article on Jay Walker's library. Sputnik? Check. Original Anatomia Universa? Yep. Old surgical instruments? You bet. TRS-80 and the WWII Enigma machine? Wouldn't miss 'em.
The etched glass balustrades with all sorts of scientific references are wonderful, as is the Escher like tile floor (about the only thing here that is recreatable on a professionals budget, instead of a Priceline founder's budget...)
Any area of scientific inquiry can be found here, collected in a beautiful setting that shows just what treasures they are.
