Libraries and Archives
The Museum Libraries and Archives are a special non-circulating library developed to educate visitors about the Brooklyn Museum, its history, objects, and exhibitions, as well as the broader areas of art and cultural history from antiquity to the present.
We're renovating our second floor to bring you a better experience, which means the Libraries and Archives are closed to the public until Fall 2016. In the meantime, our Library Online Catalogue is available for research. If you're a researcher who needs to access our resources, send us an email and we'll do our best to assist you. Thanks for your patience.
