Henry Moore's reclining sculpture lets the visitor know they are about to enter an important place. The next indicators are the colorful windows made by Australian artist Leonard French, which depict the various planets. But the real treat is the 200 kilometers of shelving, which hold over five million books. In addition to books, there are also numerous paintings, manuscripts, maps, newspapers and photographs. The visitor centre and gallery offers behind-the-scenes tours as well as some entertaining stories about the history of this extensive collection. Treat yourself to the history (and future) of a nation.
