There is literally nothing here. Just a cool building from the outside. Once you are in, there is nada. Takes maybe 10 minutes to check the scene on the entire place. Not too sure why this is on the list of things to do/see. You...More
This building has some beautiful interior features and houses some important archives and exhibits. I just wandered in from the street and wasn't able to find much information on the building but it would seem no expense was spared in its construction, which includes lavish...More

There are lots of spaces in this old library, but most of the books must be in stacks. There's a modern coffee shop in the middle of one imposing hall, which seems rather inappropriate. The woodwork and stained glass windows are impressive.The reading room is...More
