Departing From The Museum
Some final views around the Museum of Nature, including the central atrium, the mosaic art of a moose on the floor in the entrance, and the stained glass windows above the main doors. I hope you've enjoyed this first tour I've taken you on in here.
I especially love the expanse of your first photo!ReplyDelete
Cool place. The acoustics must be amazing. do they have concerts there on occasion?ReplyDelete
Thank you, William. I enjoyed this tour through your photos.ReplyDelete

Nice place. And... I see this is a bull moose. Odd they decided to have a three-quarter view of him from behind. There must be a joke in there somewhere by the artist.ReplyDelete
