My friends and I took a field trip last week with our college art history class. It was a Saturday trip, and anyone who attended the trip was going to receive extra credit. My friends and I were interested to visit the place, but extra credit made us forget about losing a whole Saturday. It took an hour and a half to drive to the museum, which had a display of rare books. Some of the books and manuscripts were from the 10th Century. My friends and I were very excited to see some ancient scrolls and text. When we arrived to the museum, there was a group of people gathered around the rare book room. Each visitor had to enter through a special room, and the rare books room was even set up with a special air filtration unit. Each person had to wash their hands and put on a special gown, before they could enter the room where the rare books were held. The room was set up with an air filtration unit, so they could display these rare books. The air filtration unit removed all of the bacteria and pathogens that could do harm to the rare books. Even the humidity was monitored, in order to preserve the special manuscripts. My favorite part of the collection, was an old textbook written by an ancient Greek philosopher. I would drive 10 hours to see more pages from that Old textbook. I can see why the museum set up such a unique viewing room with an air filtration system. Those books are an amazing treasure.
