Palace of Education

Classic Grecian architecture is reproduced in the great Palace of Education.  The beautiful colonnades on the four sides are in fine proportion and the logglas offer an attractive promenade.  The building covers eight acres and stands on the east side of the Grand Basin, surrounded by lagoons.  Access is by means of several beautiful bridges.  The cost of this palace was $400,000.  The educational exhibits show everything from the kindergarten to the highest university courses.  A complete exhibit of laboratory operations is made.  Technical and agricultural schools and commercial and industrial training all have their place.  A commercial school is in full operation.  In addition to the exhibits from many states and countries, five large cities have independent exhibits.  Leading colleges also have exhibits.  A model lecture hall, schools showing methods of training deaf, dumb and blind pupils; fine art institutes and the works of polytechnic schools are among other features.
