|This is the Great Hall of the Jefferson Building. The center of everything
at the Library of Congress. This room, unlike the Reading Rooms,
allows children and teens to enter. Although that might sound good because
you can go in and explore instead of sitting at the computer, waiting for
this website to load, there are some downsides to it too! For one thing
how will you get to Washington D.C. if your parents don't want to go? Where
would you stay if you don't know anyone living there? And how much would
it cost? Well, I can tell you the answer to one of them! All of the
museum and Senate buildings have FREE ADMISSION!!! When I went there I
was amazed. In New York when you go to a Museum you usually have to spend
$40 to go past the security desk!!
|This is a picture of the Great Hall staircase. It has many fine stone
carvings all along the banister and the walls as the green arrow POINTS
out!! Imagine living in a place like that. Big rooms full of sculptures
and carving that can't be seen anywhere else. Now that would be the life!!
This may not be a main room in one of the gorgeous Library of Congress
Buildings but it IS the main entrance to the Madison Building which is
equally pretty!!! The picture on the left was taken in spring. I went to
Washington D.C. in late February and the picture on the right is how I
saw it. Can you compare them?
Pencils and Paper down, here are the answers.
course one picture was taken from a closer location (the right one)
are taken in different seasons
in the right picture and nobody but the tulips are in the left one.
