The first decision you must make when visiting The Barnum Museum is which doorway to use. There are two: The Romanesque and Gothic Entranceways. The Romanesque entrance is a large rounded arch, several stories high, with massive vaulting and heavy columns. Some of the stones used in this arch are said to have come from an early incarnation of the monastery Santa Maria de Montserrat in Catalonia, and it is rumored that you can hear the echoes of chants dedicated to The Virgin as you pass through this portal. Perhaps you wish to enter through The Gothic entrance with its high, soaring, pointed arches, and impressive moldings around the great doors that are elaborately decorated with sculpted medieval dancing figures. Gothic dance music seems to echo through the stones as you cross the threshold by this entrance.
