Researchers must make appointments for visits. Please call for an appointment as far in advance of your planned visit as possible, as space is limited and reading rooms may be temporarily closed to accommodate Museum functions. Additionally, some materials may require a few days' preparation.
Photocopies and microfilm reader/printers are available for a fee to researchers at both locations. Laptop computers may be used in the reading rooms. Digital cameras and small desktop scanners are permitted with prior approval from the Archives.
