Please note the following information to make your experience safe and enjoyable:

The Library and Museum is a Federal agency and weapons are not allowed in the building. Upon entry, all visitors must pass through a security check with a metal detector.

All bags (including, but not limited to handbags, backpacks, satchels, totes, camera bags, briefcases, and travel bags) will be x-rayed and possibly searched by security staff.
