4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 3, 2012

They have some really cool old stuff. Not the place to go for new titles though

“Eureka Exhibit of Famous Scientific Documents was Great”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 22, 2011

If you are at the Walters Museum or the Basilica- this is right across the street. Not a lot to see, but if you go in the main entrance to the left, there is a room with exhibits of famous books/documents in history- mendeleev's periodic table of the elements, Dalton's works, Einstein's theory of relativity, etc. If you go to the right, there is an amazing spiral staircase great for pictures. If you are into scientific history or significant documents, it is a great 30 minute stop by the Walters Art Museum.
