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 open for public appointments on Wednesdays and Thursdays, 1–4 pm. To request a time, please fill out a form for library research or email for archival research.

In the meantime, peruse our Libraries Online Catalogue and Archives Collections. If you have questions about these resources, send us an email, and we’ll do our best to assist you:
