During renovation of the Folger Great Hall, we offer a special exhibition in the Founders’ Room, celebrating the collecting history of our founders, Henry and Emily Folger. The Shakespeare First Folio was central to the Folgers’ collecting interests, but the Folgers also collected art and manuscripts related to Shakespeare’s period of history. Discover some of the treasures that constitute the core of the Folger collection, and which set the tone for future collection policies and acquisitions.

Please note: Sundays, open NOON - 5pm
