I wasn't looking for this place I just followed a brown sign and we found each other. If you love history..books and world records this is the place to go. It was so tranquil and the staff were so inviting and friendly and knowledgeable that I could have remained all day. The one thing it misses is a place for refreshments but that is a minor thing.

What a wonderful place. Hands on library. A national treasure.
