There are more than 5,000 historical print and digital journals, as well as 73,000 music scores, 75,000 videos, and 13,000 articles within the 325-year-old archive of the attraction. Additionally, it features 35,000 digital and print newspapers from around the world, along with nearly 500 rare collectibles.
