The Lobby

You find yourself in a huge chamber, open to the night sky. There seems to be no artificial source of light, but there are plenty of sources of radiant darkness which do just as good a job at making the room and the other patrons in it visible. They also seem to aid in making the faint stars in the night sky more easily visible.

There are various hallways off to the sides, presumably leading to different wings of the museum. In the center of the room is an information desk, manned by what looks like a color-inverted spherical cow. Near it is the museum directory, which reads:

Welcome to the Night Museum! If this is your first time, you might want to head over to the Auditorium and watch a recording of our introductory presentation. Otherwise, feel free to browse at your leisure. A quick guide to the wings of the museum and some of their featured exhibits is below. You'll be able to find a more detailed description of the exhibits at each wing's directory, but of course, nothing beats experiencing it for yourself!
