  • 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
  • If you're at all interested in old and rare books you owe it to yourself to take a trip to the Beinecke library. The building itself is interesting to walk through, allowing you to view the bulk of the collection that the public is not allowed access to. Then there are a few items that are always on display, including a Gutenberg Bible, and displays for rotating exhibitions. All of that, and there's no admission charge! If you're in New Haven and it's open, check it out.
  • A rectangular UFO with beveled edges plopped down on Beinecke Plaza. Pearlescent interior.
  • Beautiful and interesting building, and a fantastic collection
  • If you're interested in rare books and manuscripts, and are in the area, you should definitely visit, for the architecture as well as for the free exhibit.
