The outside of the building has miniature replicas of statues at Stratford upon Avon, an entirely too-accurate English garden with herbs and bushes mentioned in Shakespeare's works, and these reliefs from scenes on the front of the building. Inside is a small theater and gallery with manuscripts, items, and again beautiful architecture (you'll forget you're in D.C.--I'm being so serious about the Hogwarts vibe). The current exhibit in the main hall was curated by one of Bigbad's former professors. It was nice to see our alma mater mentioned.
My photo of the first folio was taken behind a sneeze shield of glass. ;)
