The Library and Archive are currently closed

The Library and Archive will be closed until the end of 2020. We hope to reopen to visitors in January 2021, however this is dependent on government guidance.

Staff are now back onsite and we can still fulfil some research and reprographic requests remotely, so please still do get in touch with us by email on library@wallacecollection.org or by calling 0207 563 9528
