Kurt Vonnegut Memorial Library Reviews & Ratings

  • Circle Center location os closed now. They will reopen in their permanent location on Indiana Avenue on or about September 22, 2019.

  • What a great experience. You can get a very informative tour with the price of admission. So much is packed in this place I highly recommend it

  • I had high expectations before arriving and all of them were met. This is a small library and museum and it has fantastic items representing Kurt's life. The person working gave a great little tour, and it was really nice being able to see the re-imagined workspace that Kurt actually had when he was alive. I really liked the store, as well. Pretty sweet little place--I hope it stays around!

  • Small but beautiful and intense little library and museum dedicated to Kurt Vonnegut and modest but fun selection of goods in their gift area for Vonnegut fans

  • The gentleman who gave us the tour is amazingly insightful and knowledgeable about all thing Vonnegut. He was kind and open to conversation and we stayed quite a while after the tour ended just to speak with him. The collection the museam had is extensive and very well curated. Would reccomend to any new or old fans of Vonnegut!
