“Beautiful library with interesting bibliomania exhibit”
Review of Peabody Library

Peabody Library
Ranked #25 of 245 things to do in Baltimore

Attraction details
Reviewed 8 October 2017 via mobile

The library is gorgeous. From the lower level you are enveloped into a vertical teiring of books. The architecture and lighting is beautiful. I was there for an event where it was hard to pay attention due to the environment. Would definitely recommend going back.

Beautiful library. I was speechless upon entering. The card catalog smells wonderful. We took some great photos. Looked at some old books. It's fantastic.

We visited this library by accident. Not sure if it's because we didn't have any expectation, we just love it! It's very old-fashioned and a little unreal - we almost thought that we ran into the world of Harry Potter. Visit this place if you can't stand the heat in Baltimore, and would like a piece of peace in a cool quiet place. You won't be disappointed unless you prefer shopping to books....

Very limited hours and also limited access to the bookshelves (for good reason). But still a must for anyone who is obsessed with books and/or libraries. Also, if you are really into the history of crests or other nonsense british royalty crap, this is totally for you.

You can drive past the library, turn the corner, park in a garage, and wend you way to the library. It may have the most beautiful interior of any building I've ever seen. Classic old time architecture that they don't do anymore. Instead they use glass, and shiny metal to try. Yawn.
