We were tired, hungry and hot, but the girls and I decided to quickly peek into the Jefferson Building (one of three buildings that make up the congressional library), and we were not disappointed.
As I mentioned, it was a quick visit. We didn't spend a lot of time, but we were able to view several exhibits and see this great view of the reading room. The Library of Congress offers guided tours, as well. Follow the link above to find more information!
Next to the Library of Congress, you will find our great Supreme Court. As I mentioned in previous posts, our visit coincided with several remodel projects. Unfortunately, one of those was in the actual courtroom. We were still able to access all of the other areas open to tourists, and it was a great experience.
