    My family and I visited a couple days ago, gorgeous! The lady guarding the main reading room was incredibly rude to us when we tried to enter. We were happy to wait in line. Be nice!

    What ever you do, make sure to see the Library of Congress in DC! Absolutely stunning building! Check out only one of 3 copies of the Gutenberg Bible, the only copy in north america.

    Evening reading room access on Mondays, Wednesdays, and Thursdays. Enter through back door of the Jefferson building. If you don't have a reader card, they can help at the check-in desk to the M.R.R.

    Created in 1800 the library is the nation's oldest federal cultural institution & the largest library in the world. In 1815 Thomas Jefferson sold his entire personal collection of books to the library

    That we maintain a collection of our written history, as a culture, is so mind-bogglingly cool that it takes a bit to fully appreciate. How can I suggest just one thing to check out?

    Use the underground tunnel between the Capitol and the congress library. Than you don't need to go to an extra security check and more lines.

    Informative tours and gorgeous artwork/architecture. Tip: researchers and students in the area can apply for cards to get access to the reading rooms for their research.

    The Largest Library in the World not under one roof getting there is a bit cumbersome however if you have easy access a membership is well worth it. They have any book you might think of.

    It’s such a beautiful place, and full of much more than you think. Well worth spend a few hours, if not days. Definitely get a tour if you can.

    Linda biblioteca... com certeza um dos edifícios mais bonitos de Washington. Entre os itens importantes estão uma Bíblia de Mainz e um exemplar da Bíblia imprensa por Guttemberg.

    When visiting on a weekday, make sure to go to the sixth-floor Madison Cafeteria for sweeping views of the National Mall without the crowds.

    Awesome place, but If you're looking for the Book of Secrets or a secret library room that only the President has access to, then you spend too much time watching movies.

    There are some great mini-exhibits in this building, which is largely used by researchers and ignored by tourists. Make sure to check out the 6th floor and basement.

    A must-see of early Republic neo-classical architecture and THE place to get your historical research - or research for any subject - finished.

    If you really want to get a great, in-depth tour, try to get Tom Hoban. He's great!!

    Immediately after it opened in 1897, the Library of Congress was widely considered to be the most beautiful, educational and interesting building in Washington. Leggi tutto

    Love the majestic and elaborate architecture of the building. Also, admired The Court of Neptune Fountain by Roland Hinton Perry right outside the library.

    If you want to get inside the actual library, you need a access card which is free to anyone, but will take a couple days to get it

    There's a free tour a few times a day, which lasts an hour and a half and is fascinating. If you only have time for either the Capitol tour or this one, no doubt - take this one. Far more informative.

    “Todos los hombres del presidente”: Los periodistas pasan todo un día aquí para chequear los libros solicitados por la Casa Blanca. Intentan comprobar si hay una persecución contra los Demócratas.

    one of the most beautiful buildings in the country (if not the world) and lesser known attractions in DC.

    Going to the Capitol?! Take the underground tunnel! Most people miss it and you can skip security because you've already been cleared!

    If you are conducting extensive research or well will be using materials for more than a short time, ask for a study shelf.

    The Jefferson building is covered in beautiful artwork that is dripping in symbolism. Take advantage of the free tours to really get the most out of this visit!

    One of the best interiors in DC. A must for history fans. Take the Metro to Capitol South and walk two blocks north to building. Avoid driving.
