Perspectives Inside The Museum

I've shown you this building before. The old Dominion Observatory stands out at the Experimental Farm, where astronomical work was done for many years. It featured into the astronomy area here in the museum.

Here we have a survey map of Prince Edward Island, the smallest of the Canadian provinces.

I wanted some wider perspective views inside the museum.

Here we had the entrance to the Leonardo da Vinci exhibit.

Turning around gives a view of the theatre space ahead, where regularly through the day, short documentaries are shown or presentations made. When not in such use, images are projected onto a screen.

Such as Paris at night.

Or the Arabian peninsula.

Looking at the map of the museum, I realized I had missed one section- here it is below. It focuses on sound technology, and we'll have a look tomorrow.


  1. I should spend time there... we'll see if I become more technological! ;)

  2. Those who arranged the museum were very knowledgeable people ...

  3. I once was planning on hiking on Prince Edward Island before going on instead to Cape Breton.

  4. Hello, it looks like a wonderful museum to visit. Enjoy your Sunday, wishing you a happy new week!

  5. would be interesting laying out a museum, something that I'd like to do.

  6. It is often good to see the winder context, even in some kinds of portraits.

  23. There is so much to see and learn in this place. It could easily take up many hours if I were to visit.

  24. This looks like a place one could spend days exploring.

  25. The exhibitions in the museum are well spaced William, looking forward to seeing the remaining section ✨
