Museum Planet presents a comprehensive narrated digital tour of Central Park and surrounding buildings in New York City.
Every monument in the park is included: Strawberry Fields, the Maine Monument, Bethesda Fountain, Cleopatra’s Needle (the Obelisk), Balto the Sled Dog, Mother Goose and more. You will experience Central Park like few visitors ever have.
Olmsted and Vaux, the superintendent and architect, were geniuses and you will come to appreciate that. The monuments are fascinating for who was remembered and why. The war memorials will break your heart. The story of the Obelisk (the most important piece of art in the Western Hemisphere) is one for the ages. There was a riot in Alexandria, Egypt when it was removed from there - in the dead of the night.
You can stop and start the tour; jump around in it; stop it to read the often extensive text and enlarge all the photos with a ‘swoosh’ of your fingers.
The tour is better than a large and well-researched book. Museum Planet takes you there: 217 photographs, 45.2 minutes of audio and 29,296 words, plus biographies.
