Right now the main exhibit thru September 2020 is an absolute must see: "Shall Not Be Denied: Women Fight for the Vote". One of the best historical exhibits in Washington in years. If you've never been to the Library, take the tour. You can even apply for and get a Library reader card.

This was our first visit to the LC and we were amazed. It is like any extrodinary building in Europe and we were proud to have it as an asset of the US. It was unbelievable!

After we finished our tour of the capitol, my wife asked if I wanted to visit the Library of Congress. I was hesitant, but she said it was worth it and she was right. They give tours also which was nice.

We actually went here twice during our visit. First, We got a Library of Congress Reader card so we could go into the main reading room (note: read only no borrowing). Later, we saw the exhibit on maps. We saw the map that first used the word America. On the second visit we saw the Jefferson book collection which was the foundation of the Library of Congress. This could have been done in one visit but we didn’t want to rush it.

It took 3 years to just clean this beautiful building. It has been restored to all of its glory from days gone by. We loved seeing the actual, and quite accurate original map from the early 1500’s. People had a close idea of our planet, earth from our earliest years.
