Went this weekend. The grounds of the museum are beautiful and this installation is definitely a hike. We were unable to close the door and get the full camera obscura affect due to the smell. It’s an outdoor closed off small room with no ventilation… I started to close the door and gagged, I got the overwhelming odor of a portapotty. Just an FYI if you’re sensitive to smells you may not be able to fully enjoy it.

The path and the osbcura installation is currently closed to public when we tried to see it on 2/12/2020. The park in general was very pretty and there are other installations to see, so it wasn’t a total loss.
