Paris: 02.23 Metro Station


Day Three. In the morning we caught the metro and headed to the Musée Arts de Metiers where unfortunatly I wasn't allowed to take photographs inside the Musée (sorry Liana!) It was awesome, and released my inner physics nerd. They had all the first instruments used to weigh objects, and how they first determined time. However, the section on communications was my favorite. They had the very first Camera Obscura, and the very first camera used by Nicéphore Niépce. They also displayed the evolution of cameras, up to the modern day SLR camera. They had film camera's too, and had a little section on how the very first films were produced.
