Reading Room

The Museum library’s, Photographic Collection’s and Deutsche Plakat Museum’s book holdings have been merged and are centrally accessible, directly from the entrance hall, in a bright reading and study room. This can also be used outside museum opening hours.

Visitors, academics, students and pupils will have access to a holding of more than 60,000 works. This includes book, catalogues, journals and special publications on painting, sculpture and graphic arts, photography, posters and contemporary art.  It is also possible to view original graphic works and photographs.

The Museum Folkwang’s library is a reference library. All media is available in the reading room and can be organized thematically. Book holdings are accessible via an electronic catalogue on the library’s homepage.

The reading room has 38 workplaces and a reading lounge and is directly accessible from the Museum entrance hall.
