Libraries and Archives

Our Libraries and Archives provide research resources about the Brooklyn Museum—our history, objects, and exhibitions—as well as general art and cultural history, from antiquity to the present. We're here to help local and international scholars and researchers find answers to their questions and promote equity through expanding access to our historical narrative.

Our Libraries and Archives are currently open by appointment to all researchers. Appointments are available Wednesdays, Thursdays, and Fridays, from 1 to 4 pm. Before requesting an appointment, discover our holdings through our Library online catalogue and Archives collections. To request an appointment, please submit a research inquiry form. For all other inquiries, email us at or and we'll do our best to assist you.
