    It's worth visiting here. After queuing for security checks, he entered the Great Hall and was shocked by the brilliance in front of him. Like a magnificent palace. Staff guide ordinary tourists to the third floor, overlooking from a high place, can take photos, but can not enter it, forbid talking loudly. The magnificent and solemn Main Reading Room is the reading room that Nicolas Cage rushed through in National Treasure 2 and found the President's Secret Book on the bookshelf upstairs. On the first floor, you can see the treasure of the town hall: on the second floor of the Gutenberg Bible, there is also an exhibition on the history of American civil rights movement. Americans use the most magnificent buildings to collect knowledge, which really makes us sigh. Tips: There are three buildings in the library. We started to go wrong. In fact, only the Jefferson Tower is available for tourists. The building is right behind the Capitol Building. Seen from the Google map, it's on the west side of the building. Free of charge. Entering the door requires passing the security check. There are clear instructions inside the Library of Congress to follow the underground passage to the Capitol Building (all water and food are not allowed to be brought into the Capitol Building for security checks again).

    It is the most beautiful library in the world. The museum is like a magnificent palace, magnificent, atmospheric, classical decoration and sculpture make it more like a royal church or museum, with a statue of the goddess of wisdom on the first floor of the hall. It takes a whole day to browse carefully. The collection of books and collections is very rich. Many historical items, such as the first printed copy of the Goodburg Bible in the world, are stored here.

    The Library of Congress, founded in 1800, is one of the most important libraries in the world. It is the oldest federal cultural institution in the United States. It looks beautiful from the outside, and the exquisite ceilings and sculptures after entering the hall are all exquisite. And it is open to the outside world free of charge.

    The manuscript of the Declaration of Independence is stored in it, and the mysterious hiding area in National Treasure, which collects the secrets of American presidents of all ages, is also in it. In terms of the paintings inside the building itself, it also has a very high level.

    The Library of Congress is free to visit. This itinerary is proposed to be arranged for one day with the Capitol Building, because the two buildings are interlinked. Apart from collecting books, the Library of Congress will hold various exhibitions in different exhibition halls, which is very worth visiting.

    The Library of Congress (LIBRARY OF CONGRESS) http://www.loc.gov/There is an aisle directly to the National Library in the Capitol Building. Note the signs and do not need to go out. Opening hours - "Monday to Saturday 8:30 - 4:30 ticket-free National Library is composed of Jefferson Building, Adams Building and Madison Building, of which Thomas Jefferson Building is open to the public. We went to the other two buildings earlier and also had the name of the National Library, but it was not open to the public. The U.S. Capital-to-Washington Act of 1800 provided for the establishment of a library to provide Congress with the required books. At that time, only 740 books and three maps were collected. Retired President Jefferson provided private collections to Congress. Later, in 1897, the newly built Library of Congress opened and became the library palace of the American people. It was named Thomas Jefferson Building in 1980 to commemorate his contribution to the Library of Congress. Walking into the National Library, the vast marble corridor, stained glass, exquisite handrails, symbolizing civilization, the universe, science, nature and other sculptures, murals, sculptures and mosaics are everywhere, just like visiting the magnificent art museum. The treasures of the town hall are the giant handwritten "Mainz Bible" and the printed "Gutenberg Bible" in the mid-15th century. The second floor overlooks the main reading room. The National Library of the United States now has 150 million collections, the largest collection of rare books in the United States. Libraries use their collections to serve Congress, as well as other government departments, research institutions, scholars and general readers. In addition to the main reading room, there are 21 special reading rooms. The National Library has a showroom with detailed information on the 1964 Civil Rights Act of Congress (CIVIL RIGHT ACT OF 1964), which is of great significance in American history. According to the materials, in the 1990s, the National Library launched the digital project of American Past Library, which provides multimedia, photographs, audio, video and American text materials for young people and the nation. It took us an hour to walk around.

    Come out of the Capitol and visit the Library of Congress next to it. It's also free. The size and luxury of the main reading hall is amazing. It is magnificent, such as a classical European palace. Even if you go inside for a tour, it will open your eyes.
