Remodeled and Remodeling

Today we spent some time at the brand new MOHAI (Museum of History and Industry).
They have just completed remodeling the Armory on South Lake Union. (There are multiple armories in Seattle.)
Their remodel was necessary because they were essentially kicked out of their old house, which will be the site of a freeway off-ramp or something.

We took advantage of a members only preview to see the new sites with a small number of folks. I took a few pictures of special bits.

What museum trip would be complete without information about the local sewer system’s history.

There was much that we could not see due to our relative lack of time, and Carl’s need for dinner.

He did deserve a break. He walked down to the museum after spending a good amount of time in the basement with our remodeling.

The dark stain on the wall is where the water runs down from the hole
