 "`How Did You Like the Exhibit?' `It Rubbed Me the Wrong Way.'" 

      The 3M Company's 3M-Dwan Museum, the world's only sandpaper 
      museum, is located in Two Harbors, Minnesota.  The museum 
      displays over 200 types of sandpaper in 30,000 colors, 
      textures, and varieties.  But there are no plans to add a 
      gift shop.  The museum cannot jeopardize its status as a 
      nonprofit entity by competing with hardware stores.
