Karpeles Manuscript Library Museum
Housed in a former Christian Science church with an imposing Classical Revival façade, the Karpeles Manuscript Library Museum is one of 11 such museums in the U.S. that regularly displays items from the world’s largest private collection of original documents and manuscripts. Previous exhibitions have included aviator Charles Lindbergh’s handwritten designs for the Spirit of St. Louis and the letters of psychoanalyst Sigmund Freud, which span half a century. The aim of the Karpeles family in establishing these museums is to stimulate interest in learning, and admission is always free.
