After playing with Mapquest, I've managed to pin down the coordinates
of the museum as 59 degrees, 56 minutes, 25 seconds north, 30 degrees,
19 minutes, 00 seconds east. As seconds of latitude and longitude in
that part of the world are about 100 feet and 50 feet respectively,
the museum will cover several square seconds of space.
