My 2nd grader had the opportunity to meet his favorite author Dav Pilkey, it was a great evening. They also have storytime for younger children. However if you have the chance to go by yourself it is worth the visit, take the train to Union Station and walk a few blocks to Library of Congress, such a beautiful scenario in DC.

One of the most beautiful building interiors in Washington DC and is often over looked by tourists. Don't forget to get your Library of Congress Card

Not only have amazing movies been shot in our National Library, but once or twice a year, the floor of the library opens to ANY / ALL those who wish to see the true knowledge of our Great American Nation. Anyone can visit and obtain a library card, can study where great leaders thoughts were/are captured on paper, and see that knowledge and our past is TRUE POWER.

We did a 'drive by' of this amazing building on our way from visiting the U.S. Capitol to lunch. I wish we'd had a lot more time than the half hour we spent walking through. The building itself and the beautiful architecture was incredible, but there were several exhibits that my husband and I wanted to see. Unfortunately, by then, our kids were very tired and museumed-out. Will definitely go back here and make it one of our first stops of our next DC trip.

I think it’s easy for tourists to skip over the library of congress. Even just go to take pictures inside of the great architecture and the use the tunnel to go over to the Capitol for a tour. For locals, they have great exhibits inside. Right now they have a grand one on women’s long fight to get the right to vote for the 100ty anniversary. They also have a Rosa Parks exhibit. The other exhibits were smaller and did not absorb as much of my time. I went on a Sunday in March. There was a little bit of a line to get in but I came in right after a big tour group.
