“Browning Library”
Reviewed October 15, 2012

This is one of the top ten most beautiful buildings on a USA Univerity campus. It is also the largest collecion of Robert Browning memorabilia. For research there are rooms of volumes of his work as well as Elizabeth Barrett Browning. The new garden is a special place to sit and reflect.

Thank you for the wonderful review! We are enjoying the new Garden of Contentment as well and hope that you will visit again soon. The garden is also available for weddings and other events if you ever need an outdoor venue!

“For Barrett/Browning Fans”
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.
