Library

The Bundeskunsthalle library is open to all the museum's visitors – whether they are art enthusiasts or scholars working in the area. The library is both a working library for members of the museum staff and a public research library. The library's holdings have been steadily developed since its founding in 1992, and now comprises of more than 50.000 items (books, magazines, and movies)

The reading room allows visitors direct access to books on art (Section K) and children’s books (Section Fl), as well as the current year's issues of magazines. Due to the limited space available, Section A, F, M and Y, as well as magazines from previous years are stored in the stacks, not open to public. These works need to be ordered in advance. However, as long as a request for these materials is received by 10 a.m., we will provide same-day access. Books and other materials can be ordered by letter, e-mail or phone.

You can search through our library collection with our online database. The library staff will be happy to help you with any questions, whether by e-mail or by phone.

The reading room offers visitors computers with internet access, a bookscanner, a video booth and an auditory booth, as well as access to key art history databases.

All of these services are open to the public.

New: We now offer free Wifi access!
