Museum Staircase

An underground museum does not have architecture that is visible from the outside, but it does have interior architecture.

The central staircase in San Jose's underground museum complex has a broad spiral staircase.  Perhaps the architect was inspired by /frank Lloyd Wright's design of the Guggenheim Museum in New York.

I will show some photos of parts of the collection in the days ahead.

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

Looks like a gradual, slow decline which is easy to navigate unlike some of the more steep spiral staircases I have seen elsewhere.

It does look a lot like the Guggenheim! Very nice.

That staircase is a work of art itself.

Beautiful space, would not guess you were underground.

It does have a similarity to the Guggenheim. Also the New England Aquarium in Boston.

I have a dim memory of visiting a major museum somewhere that was largely underground. Shanghai, maybe? It's odd that this one chooses to hide itself.
