My second visit in this series is technically not to a museum but to a library exhibition. For the first time in its history The New York Public Library has curated a permanent exhibition — “Treasures” — showcasing some of the most fascinating pieces from its collection. The treasures in this exhibition tell the stories of people, places, and moments spanning 4,000 years—from the emergence of the written word through to the present day. Visitors will encounter manuscripts, artworks, letters, still and moving images, recordings, and more that bring vividly to life voices of the past.
