The American Treasures Gallery is currently closed. In April 2008, please plan to come to the Library to see "Creating the U.S." and other exhibitions.
The American Treasures of the Library of Congress exhibition is an unprecedented permanent exhibition of the rarest, most interesting or significant items relating to America's past, drawn from every corner of the world's largest library. On display in the Jefferson Building Treasures Gallery in Washington, D.C., the American Treasures exhibition presents more than 250 items arranged in the manner of Thomas Jefferson's own library, the seed from which the present collections grew: Memory (History); Reason (Philosophy, including Law, Science and Geography); and Imagination (Fine Arts, including Architecture, Music, Literature and Sports).
exhibition not only allows you to see the same "Treasures" currently

rotated out of exhibition for preservation reasons (see what exhibit
