The Grand Hall is a wonderful space in the Museum of History. The coastal tribes of the Pacific Northwest are the emphasis here, with artifacts in the rooms behind the walls. Corridors leading off either end of this space go through an extensive area on the First Nations peoples of Canada. Totem poles dominate the hall.
I was here on both days of the Canada Day weekend- I visited the new Canada History Hall on the second day. On both days, these two stilt walkers were present in the museum. When I first saw them on the second day, they were coming out of an elevator onto an upper floor.
Here are more views of Alex Janvier's Morning Star, which stands high over the south end of the Grand Hall.
I decided to come back the following day in order to take in the new permanent galleries, but came outside, where a good deal was going on throughout Canada Day.
