We ducked in here during a rain shower. We were really impressed by the interior marble work and murals throughout the 3 floors we visited. While we only "visited" to stay dry it turned out to be a place worth seeing---no matter the weather.
Had a fabulous guided tour of the maps room. The number, age of some of them and the care preserving the maps was amazing. The guide was informative and knowledgeable. So many different maps, learned so much
Be part of every library scene you’ve ever seen in a US movie by visiting this beautiful museum. The reading room made famous by many movies is peaceful as is the courtyard with fountain. Get a book sit down and take in this architecturally amazing...More
If you have the time, definitely attend a free tour (check the web site for times) as you will learn so much about the history of the library, its construction, the architect, the sculptures and sculptors, the painting and painters, the various types of marble...More
You can't beat a free tour, and it's quite interesting learning about the Boston Public Library, it's past and how it has grown. Seeing the Bates Hall and the grand staircase are worth checking out with or without a tour. It's so impressive for a...More
We wandered in here after passing it on the Duck Tour, the inside is truly stunning and even for a European who is used to visiting stunning buildings this is a real wow. A library may not be everyone's natural choice for a visit but...More
Like reading the story depicted in the stained glass windows of churches, these two huge (as encompassing a whole floor) mural compilations/collections by Edwin Austin Abbey and John Singer Sargent captivated our attention for inordinate amounts of time.

Wander around this quintessential neighborhood in the heart of Boston for high-end shops, restaurants, and the feeling of city bustle. Its most identifiable skyscrapers, the Prudential Center and John Hancock Tower, are highlights of the city skyline. Visit Newbury street to explore unique and trendy boutiques – as well as every other kind of store imaginable – all housed in beautiful brownstone buildings. In nice
weather, restaurant patio seating is packed with Bostonians and tourists alike soaking up the sunshine and enjoying the food. Commonwealth Ave offers a beautiful stroll down residential tree-lined streets. Keep walking towards the Charles River and enjoy a beautiful view by the water. In warmer months, people run and bike on paths running along the esplanade, and sail and kayak on the Charles River. Boylston street, also full of shops, bars, and restaurants, is the finish line of the Boston Marathon. Head towards Copley Square and check out the Boston Public Library, which is particularly beautiful from the Dartmouth street entrance.

We went on a Sunday afternoon at 1pm. It seemed that many people arrived for the 1pm seating. The cost was about $48.00 per person. The dining room was beautiful. I am not sure what other days are offered. The tea included scones, pastries and tea sandwiches. Each of us received a pot of tea of our choice. Cocktails are also served. The Map room was a smaller bar area. Very nice experience.
No, It's Free Admission but Check the working Hours putting in the glass of outer Gate, Change from day to day,
Notice: 1- I think, This information is applying for all Public Library in USA.
