Whispering Gallery at the Chicago Museum of Science and Industry. Exhibits come and go but this one remains, probably because of its purpose-built 40-foot hall with convex walls. Two people stand, one at each end facing the plexiglass reflector. Whispered voices are carried to the far end, where the voice sounds like it is inside your head. Never gets old. #chicagomuseumofscienceandindustry#whisperinggallery#acoustics
The "whispering gallery" or "whispering wall" is located on the Grand Central Terminal. Here, the acoustics of the low ceramic arches can cause a whisper to sound like a shout. According to experts, this happens because the whisperer’s voice follows the curve of the domed ceiling. #tbt#whisperinggallery#nyc#ny#newyork#grandcentralterminal#grandcentral 🚦🚇🍎🗽
The whispering gallery, Grand Central Terminal, New York. If you and a friend stand at opposite ends of the gallery and one of you speaks facing the pillar at a normal volume, the other person can hear you perfectly at the opposite pillar even though you are a good 10 metres away and facing in the opposite direction. #whisperinggallery#secretsofnewyork#newyorkcity#grandcentralstation
Aunque no llame mucho la atención,visitar la Grand Central Terminal es una de las experiencias más lindas y gasoleras/económicas de Nueva York.
La Grand Central Terminal esconde muchos secretos. Sin duda la Whispering Gallery es uno de mis favoritos!

Another one of London's more touristy things. I finally went into St. Paul's Cathedral and even up into the dome galleries. Inside the dome towards the top is called the whispering gallery. The walls are plastered so smoothly that you can whisper against it and your friends on the other side (at least a good 70 ft away) can hear you. So of course everyone in there has there ears up against the wall and is whispering (including yours truly). Yes it actually does work! #London#stpaulscathedral#whisperinggallery#is#really#cool
