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 on-site Libraries and Archives are currently unavailable. In the meantime, discover our holdings through our Library online catalogue and Archives collections. Please reach out to us at or if you have any questions, and we'll do our best to assist you.
