The Incomparable City Museum

At least, I can't compare it to any place I've been. Except maybe Disney World, but at the City Museum you can climb on ALL the stuff, which cannot be said about Disney World.

The top two images show views from the top of these massive spiral staircases inside the building. If you survive the hike up the, I don't know, dozen or so floors, you take a spiral slide back down.

The bottom image shows how some of the walls have been tiled in old metal printing plates. Such a cool idea.

Visiting this place is like getting to pretend you're in the movie The Goonies, and that has real resonance for anyone my age.
