Entrance to the Museums of (1) Pre-Columbian Gold, (2) Art, and (3) Coins

Under the plaza next to the National Theater are three museums.  This is the entrance, but the museums are entirely underground.

There is a Pre-Columbian Gold Museum, whose collection is broader than gold, an Art Museum, and a Coin Museum.  We visited the
Gold Museum and the Art Museum, and I will show some photos from them during the coming weeks.

This week we are showing photos of the Sydney Opera House  on our Viva la Voyage travel photo site.

I will look forward to your photos of these museums. Wonder why they are underground? Maybe because it's cooler and easier to preserve artifacts?

That surprised me. I was going to guess a shopping center under there.

Interesting site for a museum. Can't wait to see what you have discovered inside.

Good use of space.

There are reasons to put them underground, although I've never actually seen an underground museum except the one beneath the Arch. However, the lack of a building makes the place immediately less impressive.

This is a new one for me, but it makes lots of sense re. preservation of artifacts.
