Your reading room ticket is only valid in the department’s reading room. To visit the museum, you need a separate ticket, which you can purchase either directly at Palais Mollard or online via our ticket shop.
A day ticket or annual membership card for the library also provides access to the department’s reading room.
You can browse all the documents in the department’s holdings, although in some cases you might need to ask for a special permission due to copyright restrictions. The library staff in charge will provide you with further details.
Please note that archive material as well as books bequested to the department can only be viewed in our reading room. Books from the open shelves collection can be lent out to patrons in possession of a special permission.
The scanning of archive material in the reading room is not permitted; photography is allowed only without flash and with permission from an authorised member of the archive staff.
