Mr Monkey looked down from the first floor, towards the staircase he'd just come up. The rocket is a replica of Tintin's moonrocket, and the big doorway to the left of the rocket is the entrance to a library where people can spend all day reading comic strips*. Mr Monkey stopped to examine the patterned glass in the ceiling of the first floor, one of Horta's many Art-Noveau features. Then Mr Monkey went off to study a collection of work by different Belgian artists, grouped by style and subject.
*unless they're being dragged around town by an eager young monkey, of course.
