Gothic Castle

I have some more images from within the cave inside the Earth Gallery.


As mentioned yesterday, the booklet includes information on cave features.


One last look inside the Gallery.


Coming out into the Lantern area on this level, there are a number of historical panels to be found about the building.


Early on in its life, the Museum housed Parliament for several years when Centre Block was destroyed in the 1916 fire.

  2. I find caves fascinating though I'm not so keen on squeezing through narrow spaces any more - the Earth Gallery seems ideal to me.

  3. I agree with John about squeezing through tight spaces.

  4. ...caves are amazing creations of nature, but I'd prefer to be above ground.

  10. When I spent a night with the boyscouts in a cave in Tennessee, I found the extent of my claustrophobia...I was pretty miserable, though I tried to sleep in my sleeping bag. Now I smile when someone wants to do a cave trip...no more for this lady!

  11. Tunnels and caves give me the creeps. I'm claustrophobic.

  12. Caves are very interesting, I have visited some of them in Belgium and France.

  13. I bet kids love climbing around in the cave.

  14. @RedPat: it's probably well suited for someone who might be claustrophobic.

    @Barbara: I spent time as a child inside a Tennessee cave.

    @Red: I'm not.

    @Jan: I'd like to see more of them.

    @Sharon: kids would respond well to the cave.

  15. Interesting William but caves and moi do not mix well together, the picture of the man climbing out the small cave entrance sent my claustrophobia into overdrive 😱

  17. A wonderful exhibit. I don't think I would like to go in caves, I don't even like elevators. :)

  18. caves are such fun, i've explored them since a young kid. so cool. they are plenty around here. guess it is just the kind of ground or life/nature we have. ( :

  19. Fascinating post! I remember going into the Luray Caverns (not that far away from here) years ago. I always remember how cool it was down there, and the sights were extremely interesting.

  20. @Grace: it's been a long while since I've been in a real cave. This one has enough space and is shallow enough in terms of distance from the entrance that you'd be okay.

    @Carol: thank you!

    @Bill: I had a look- Ireland and Northern Ireland have their share of caves.

    @Beth: there's a lot of them in that part of the continent.

    @Denise: caves do have that sort of effect to me too.

  21. I think the cave area looks fascinating, something a little different to see.

    All the best Jan

  22. Intriguing about the cave. I'm not sure it would be my thing too -- at least not a small one!

  23. What a great way to see a cave.

  24. Not a fan of entering caves or the underground..I can do it but not happily.

    ReplyDelete
  25. I think this is enough of a cave to satisfy my curiosity. I know they can be beautiful but they're not terribly appealing to me.

    ReplyDelete
  26. It is beautiful inside a cave, the stalagmite and stalactite are so special!

  27. The cave within the museum gallery is amazing:)

  28. Entering caves is rather disturbing for me.
