WINDY PORCH

Windy Porch

One of my favourite parts of this museum is our incredibly windy porch! I love bringing visitors to the Museum. I always enjoy seeing their reaction as they leave the porch and enter the fantastic, massive interior of the Museum. The porch is the little pause before this moment. It gives you a glimpse of the beautiful space to come, with fantastic carvings of animals, so close up you can see the handiwork of the masons. I even like the unfinished spaces in the porch where pillars should have been added, revealing a little of the history of the building.
