Years since I've been to the Camera Obscura, but it's worth going at
least once - preferably on a sunny day. They've probably changed the
exhibits you see on the way up since I was there, so I won't comment on
them, but the Camera proper is good. You know perfectly well that
you're seeing a projection of the current scene outside, but somehow all
the cues tell you it's a static image, until something happens to remind
you it isn't.
