The Art Library
The Art Library is the joint library for Moderna Museet and the Nationalmuseum on art, photography and design. Due to major refurbishing of the premises, the Art Library will be closed until autumn 2014.
The Art Library is one of the largest Nordic specialised libraries for art, photography and design. The books reflect the collections and activities of Moderna Museet and the Nationalmuseum, and cover the period from the renaissance to today. A large part consists of monographs on artists and photographers, along with auction and exhibition catalogues.
The art library is open to everyone who is interested in art, including researchers, museum staff and the general public.
Closed for improvement
The Art Library is currently closed due to major refurbishment. In addition to adapting the premises to their purpose, a new lift will be installed for better accessibility. We plan to reopen the Library in autumn 2014. The exact date will be announced as soon as possible.
The Photography Library at Moderna Museet and the Art Library at the Nationalmuseum were merged in summer 2013. The activities are managed by both museums.
