Saturdays, Noon

See where scholars from all over the world come to research Shakespeare and every possible topic from the early modern era.  One of our knowledgable docents will share architectural and collection highlights of our historic reading rooms in a one-hour tour.

Among the treasures on view: paintings from our Shakespeare collection, Nicola d'Ascenzo's stained-glass window inspired by Jacques's "Seven Ages of Man" speech from As You Like It, a bust of Shakespeare based on his memorial in Holy Trinity Church in Stratford, and sixteenth and seventeenth-century Flemish tapestries.

Tour limited to 15 particpants.
