Library and archive


During the renovation of the museum building, the museum's activities will continue. The library and the archive will remain accessible to the public. However, they have moved to a new location at Kievitplein, right next to Antwerp Central Station. There you can visit the new reading room where most of our reference works are being stored. The records from the archive are stored in a building nearby. A large part of the library collections has moved to a storage room at FelixArchief.
