Klingenstein Library reading room, one of the oldest and most distinguished in the United States featuring Neoclassical architecture and soaring 50-foot ceilings
• An exclusive peek inside two historic archives, one of which still retains original glass floor skylights
• A tour of the Conservation Lab with the museum’s Chief Conservator to see how everything from rare manuscripts to 18th-century government documents is both preserved and prepared for display
