Both the Robben Island-signed Shakespeare volume exhibit and the Folger Founders Room are free to the public and on display through the end of September. Scott said additional renovation work on the building’s central air system makes the museum a “great oasis” for Capitol visitors touring the Hill over the next few weeks.
On Oct. 1, Folger’s Great Hall will reopen with renovated windows and shades designed to shield exhibits from ultraviolet rays, plus new display cases and enhanced lighting. The adjoining Folger Theatre kicks off its 2013-14 season with “Romeo and Juliet,” directed by Aaron Posner, on Oct. 15.
