The symbolism, stories, and significance of the magnificent architecture within the Library of Congress are revealed in six large viewing stations uniquely positioned throughout the Great Hall.
Touch screens strategically pointed in each cardinal direction within the Great Hall give visitors the opportunity to learn more about the art, ornamentation, and architecture directly within their view. As visitors touch different parts of the electronic display they zoom into extremely high resolution photographs that serve curatorial insight about the features surrounding them. Visitors can zoom in and out of every detail or follow a mediated tour through the experience, learning about each feature interpreted in the unit. As part of the greater Library of Congress Visitor Experience, each of these six stations can be added to a visitor’s personalized collection on their own myloc.gov page through a unique, bar-coded myLOC Passport.
