The MoMA Archives are currently closed.

In order to focus our staff and other resources on the Museum’s extensive expansion and reinstallation project, the Archives, Library, and Research Collections will be closed to the public June 15–October 21. We look forward to assisting you on October 22 with the scheduling of onsite appointments and other reference requests. We are aware of the inconvenience this temporary closure may pose to researchers, and hope you understand why this is necessary during this busy and exciting period for us.

For further information on the Museum’s expansion project, please visit A new MoMA.
