“A Little Known Treasure”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 29, 2013

Everyone should visit the Armstrong Browning Library. It has the largest collection of memorabilia belonging to Elizabeth Barrett and Robert Browning, as well as the largest collection of secular stained glass windows in the world! The building itself is lovely, the interior is magnificent, and the collections are extraordinary.

“Awesome place to visit”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 7, 2013

I love British Literature and Baylor University has the largest collection of the works of Robert and Elizabeth Barrett Browning in the world. Absolutely a beautiful building, architecture to host and display the original writings of the poets, as well as many personal artifacts of theirs. I could visit here more than annually. Stunning.

“Little Surprise in Waco”

This is a must see if you're in Waco for even a short time. It's free and not far out of your way even if you're passing through. The stained glass is truly amazing!

This library is one of the most beautiful libraries I have ever visited, and it has one of the best specialized collections (from Armstrong and Elizabeth Browning) I have ever seen.

“Fabulous. We spent about two hours and could have stayed longer. The new garden was so peaceful.”

Stained glass was beautiful. The research gallery and displays were so interesting. The art displays were capturing.
