A Virtual Visit to the Musee Patamecanique

We stood in the dimly lit hallway of a Bristol, Rhode Island museum. Six of us as I recall stood and chatted in that tiny room awaiting our host and museum curator, Neil Salley. He entered, accompanied by a tray filled with glasses of cream sherry, most welcome on a cold winter night. From that point on, Neil could only be described as animated as he regaled us with stories of times past and gave clues of what was to be found inside. Dressed in hat, bow tie, and coat, he reminded me of a circus barker as he drew us into his web of make believe. Finally, with a flourish, he spun around and led us into his Musee Patamecanique. Join us here for your own tour.
