Temporary summer/fall 2019 closure
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 from June 15 to October 21, reopening Tuesday, October 22. 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 questions on research needs prior to June, please contact the Archives or the Library.
