Beautiful building and grounds, amazing staff. John Connolly, the "George L. Ohrstrom, Jr. Librarian" is a spring of knowledge. I had the opportunity to be invited to see the rare books collection and it was amazing. Even if you don't like fox hunting or horses you can still appreciate the art and passion for the sport that is shown through this collection. Or just visit to enjoy one of the most elegant public libraries you probably will ever go to. I only had time to visit the Library, but when I go back I will take the time to visit the museum as well. There is an $10 admission fee for adults, $8 for seniors and teens, and children under 12 get in free.
GW Sound loves the NSLM and the polo match held annually at Great Meadow in September
