Plan a Research Visit

In addition to materials available digitally through the Museum's Collections Search, members of the public may access archival and published resources at the David and Fela Shapell Family Collections, Conservation and Research Center in Bowie, Maryland. Access to any collection material at the Shapell Center requires advance arrangement. Please see the Research in the Museum’s Library and Archival Collections page for details about preparing for a research visit.

If you are interested in remote research assistance, or cannot plan a visit to the Shapell Center, please search in our online tools and then consider asking for assistance.
