The City Museum - Entrance Halls

.

The City Museum is the wackiest place in St. Louis. I'm sorry I haven't had it on the blog before - it's been a few years since I've been inside. It is hard to describe, not a museum in the conventional sense. The Wikipedia article gives an overview. You can take a photo tour here. The Museum is full of strange urban artifacts arranged in a joyous, haphazard manner and emphasizes things to crawl through, climb on and slide down. Look carefully are these pictures just inside the entrance and find them.

WHAT I DID TOO MUCH OF YESTERDAY: 1) eat - lunch with the family at Duff's, a local institution, followed by an enormous (and very late) dinner at home with our children and their significant others. 2) take pictures, 452 of them, all RAW, at the City Museum. That's how I work. It costs nothing to press the shutter of a digital camera. Sorting, cutting and editing is another matter.

TOMORROW: more from the City Museum - Monstro City.

What a cool place. I would love to see it in person. Guess I'll take a virtual tour with you. Looks like another photographer's buffet.

Oh wow! The last photo is so other-worldly. It looked like an alien planet.

That seems like my kind of place. I love the ceiling on that last picture. So fr*ing cool!

I like what you are doing, introducing sort of a journal. Nice. Wow, 400/+ pics. How do you do to chose? I sometimes take 4 or 5 of the same thing. And I always find it so hard to pick the one that would be "the best".

Wacky museums are the best! It's why I like the Kelvingrove in Glasgow, but this looks like it's even more bonkers than that!
