The Museum's Third Floor

Next | Previous | Return to Start


The third floor of the museum is a small room that has four sets of windows providing views of Arcadia from the tallest generally accessible site in town. In between are photos, paintings, posters, and maps.

For 2010, posters were between each pair of windows to provide a view of the past. As the sign says, imagine standing in this tower with the ability to view miles away and back in time. What would you see? This exhibit (the four posters) provides a few answers to those questions.

Animated View: Stand in the middle of the room and rotate.
These views begin with a view north, then a slight turn to the right, then another turn to the right to view east, and so on. (8 images, 2 second delay)
