Yosemite Museum - Review
So what if this isn’t the epitome of a traditional museum. The Yosemite museum was built with the philosophy that buildings must become part of their environments and surroundings, not stand out from it. The architecture is thus done in Rustic Style, giving the impression that it was built by the settlers who first arrived here. Looking at it seems to suggest horizontal gravitas rather than vertical as there would have been little point putting the building in competition with the cliffs surrounding the place. The exhibits of the museum focus on the Ahwahnechee Native Americans, sketches and photographs of Yosemite Park (over a 1,00,000 of them) and baskets by some famous native weavers like Lucy Telles and Maggie Howard. The place is one of the oldest museums set up by the National Park Service.
