NileGuide Expert tip:
Arrange a tour to get the most out of the Rosenbach.
- The Rosenbach Museum & Library is cozily nestled away, much like many of its exhibits, in a residential area. The 19th Century townhouse boasts original manuscripts and handwritten copies of some of the world's most important literary works. The most highly prized of all the rarities on display is the original handwritten manuscript for James Joyce's 'Ulysses'. The museum celebrates 'Ulysses' every June 16th with the Bloomsday festival.
