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.

  30. 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.
