Review of Peabody Library

Peabody Library

Reviewed 28 July 2017

This is an iconic place in downtown Baltimore that is perfect for a function. We had drinks and hors d'oeuvres in the Exhibition Gallery. Our dinner was on the main floor of the five story Peabody Library. It would be a great place to visit during a trip to downtown Baltimore. Beautiful building and site.

When you walk inside this other worldly space will take your breath away! Once inside take your time and look over the thousands of books in this gorgeous setting. It is locate near the Walters Museum and Washington Monument and some great restaurants.

If you're in or around Baltimore, DO NOT SKIP THIS PLACE. I can not believe that this place is real, and you'd be seriously hard pressed to find a better thing to do for free on the planet. Do you like books? Yes/No - Doesn't matter, the place is architectural heroin... oh wait, you do like books? Well pack your diapers because you're gonna $#1+ yourself.

When I say quick, I mean quick. You can't go up to the other floors. The only thing you can really do it take a few quick photos. We spent less than 10 minutes here. It is beautiful and as a book lover I really would have liked to look around but I understand some of the books are older and need to be protected but it was a little disappointing. Don't go out of your way to come here.

Walking into this library was just like the scene in Beauty and the Beast when Beast gives Belle his library. It is so worth the time to go step inside. Even my 13 and 9 year olds were impressed! It's right off MT. Vernon square where you'll find the monument you Washington.
