  • Absolutely beautiful. The building is worth the visit just to admire the amazing marble walls which must be seen from the inside. Visited on a Sunday afternoon and was not very crowded. There is material on display on the first two floors, spent about 45 minutes inside to see everything.
  • I never went inside this building because it is in the process of being renovated. What an incredible exposition of Bunshaft architecture (SOM) which features semi translucent slabs of marble but I allow light to get in to the library. Can't wait for the renovation to be finished so I can see that firsthand from the inside *******Revised picture from 2019. *******
