Tony our concierge told us it was the most impressive interior in DC and he wasn't kidding. Perfect while waiting for our Capitol tour.

We had the most amazing tour guide and because of her this was favorite part of the trip. Her enthusiasm and passion was contagious. A beautiful library filled with history. Arrange for a tour!

We toured on 6/9/14, our tour guide was Abby. She was clearly passionate about the beauty and bounty of the library. She was very knowledgable, and got us a peek into rooms off the standard tour, with permission of course. I was so impressed by this building, I've seem many buildings in Rome, Paris, etc. our country's Capitol has a lot to offer, don't miss the library!

Visited after our tour at the capital. It was very easy to enter through the tunnel. We took the guided tour and learned the history of the building.
