Hi All,

Well the recession has claimed another victim.
The Phoenix Museum of History was funded primarily by gifts, grants and a small yearly allocation from the city council.
The gifts and grants have virtually dried up and the city council recently ended their contribution.
The museum closed on June 30th and it is not known when, or if, it will open again.
The museum traces the history of Phoenix from the start of white settlement up until the present day.

In the meantime here is a pano I took there on their second last day.

Hope you enjoy.

Hey Rob,
Pano's like this help to archive the day and times.
Shame museums like this must close.
Good job on lighting - could have been a bit sharper so as to zoom in on wall plaques to read.
Keep up the great work and thx for sharing

ps - was this doen with your new R1? :-)
