Grand Hall

I'm finishing off my series from the Museum of History today with these views of the Grand Hall.


This includes exterior views looking in at the Grand Hall lit up for the evening, from where the fountain usually runs during warmer weather. The snow was still falling when I left the Museum, though not as heavily as when I arrived. The view across to Ottawa and the Hill was better.

  13. Enough snow that it would have pretty much stymied today's Inauguration in D.C.

  14. You've got some people in some shots so you get an idea of the size of the gigantic great hall.

    @Gemma: it's a marvelous design, this museum.

    @Revrunner: ah, if only!

    @Red: it's quite a space, all told. It looks very different in the evening than when I've usually visited, in the daytime.
