We stopped in on the way to Fenway and it was a nice break. The reading rooms are beautiful and the art gallery was a surprising find, with good description cards of the pictures for a quick self-guided tour. It’s free so worth a look if you’re in the area. The cafe also looked really nice if you have a little more time.

This is a marvelous institution. It's a great library, a great place to sit and use the wifi, and a gorgeous piece of architecture. They did a great job when they built this temple to learning.

It’s all about the architecture which is absolutely stunning! I went with a mate and he had to comment on the incredible lion statues! I do have one small complaint and that's the amount of Mutants. It is a working library, but plenty of people here just having a sticky beak.

I was told the library in Copley Square was beautiful but I was so impressed. Could have spent the entire day there.
