The Seattle-based Museum of Pop Culture is looking to expand to New York City.
The new outpost would occupy a Manhattan building that is currently home to New York Public Library's Science, Industry and Business Library.
The museum covers all aspects of pop culture with exhibits ranging from Marvel comics to horror firms to the rock band Nirvana.
The Wall Street Journal reports the building was purchased in 2016 by an affiliate company of museum founder Paul Allen, who also co-founded Microsoft.
McGowan says the New York museum is expected to open in about four years.
The specialised library's services would then be absorbed into the Stavros Niarchos Foundation Library.
