Hundred of pieces of pizza memorabilia will be displayed at the crowdfunded attraction and restaurant

Philadelphia, Pa. is home to quite a few historic landmarks, including the Liberty Bell and Independence Hall, where the Declaration of Independence was signed by American's founders. In August, it'll welcome another: The world's first pizza history museum.

The brainchild of Brian Dwyer and his friends, Pizza Brain — with its delicious slogan, "Increase the Piece" — will open its doors next month thanks to the power of Kickstarter, where Dwyer was able to raise enough dough earlier this year to turn his dream into a reality. The combination museum and restaurant will house hundreds of pieces of pizza memorabilia that Dwyer has amassed over the years — a collection which got him recognized by the Guinness Book of World Records last July.

Dwyer owns more than 500 promotional and other items related to pizza, but his entire collection won't be on display at once. He plans to rotate pieces in and out so that, like the dough he and his friends will be tossing next door, the exhibit will always be fresh.
