POV from boat as we head into "The Grotto" a curved tunnel (info on the exhibition says it took about a minute to pass through so they must have cut out all but entrance and exit, since it was too dark to film the tunnel interior which is described as covered with tropical foliage). Our boat emerges out onto lake surrounded by more collonades and buildings.

View of the major exhibit buildings in various architectural styles as the boat makes its way through the canal, going through tunnels and under bridges & past amusement attractions. POV from boat passing through "Streets of Old Venice" section, there are a lot of people here, boats lined up along the bank and oddly enough, on one boat there's a guy dressed up in furs and feathers like some "savage" caricature, waving a tomahawk sort of weapon around in a threatening manner much to the amusement of some tourists. We pass under another bridge, then the film ends.
