Spiral Staircase reopens

May 4th, 2010

As we say goodbye to King Tut, we welcome back full use of our Allan Slaight & Emmanuelle Gattuso Staircase. Due to visitor lineups during the overwhelmingly successful King Tut exhibition, the arcade around Walker Court and the base of the staircase have been inaccessible. At last, the full length of the staircase is open. Make sure to take a walk up or down next time you visit.

In celebration, check out this photo collection of breathtaking spiral staircases, including our very own:

    I think you mean: “At last” the full length of the staircase is open. Not “Alas.”
