“For Barrett/Browning Fans”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 22, 2012

If you like their Poetry this is a must see, lots of their original furniture, portraits, and personal item purchased by Mr Armstrong during his lifetime This museum should be given several hours to really look at everything there. Have been there 2 times, a wonderful visit for a rainy day.

“Just unbelievable....”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 1, 2012

It is worth taking the time to stop at this library to view all of the beautiful stained glass windows, the stunning architecture and the wonderful period furniture. They still have a card catalog which is housed in a beautiful period library reading room. Just wonderful.
