Owner description: Though the Library of Congress doesn't own every book ever published, it sure has most of them, with 532 miles of shelves and 115 million items, with 7,000 added each working day.

Infinitely interesting, an important part of D.C. you shouldn't miss! An immense cultural treasure, a valuable learning experience, a fascinating repository of treasures.

This gorgeous building is a must see if you are in Washington D.C.—such a piece of our heritage! Go up huge white steps and enter an unbelievably colorful and guilding interior of soaring ceilings, majestic stairs, and open halls. And whatever you do, don’t miss the actually round room of the Library of Congress!

The Library of Congress is not only the largest collection in the United States, but it is housed in a beautiful building. Take time to schedule a tour and bring your camera. The art and architecture in the Library of Congress is beautiful.

The Librbay of Congress may not be the most popular of the sights on the Mall in DC, but it's definitely worth taking so time to go see. Beautiful inside, interesting and well-done exhibits. I didn't budget enough time, so I will be back!

This is a must see when you go to DC. Beautiful building that includes a copy of the Gutenberg Bible and Thomas Jefferson's library. Be sure and take the free tour offered.
