Library - Kunstpalast Düsseldorf


Due to the reconstruction measures of the Kunstpalast, the reading room of the library will close as of August 1, 2020. We look forward to welcoming you back after the reopening.


The Kunstpalast library is a reference library open to all visitors. General reference works and encyclopedia of artists offer a first insight into art history.
The entire stock of some 120,000 volumes focuses on art-historical literature on the main areas covered by the museum’s collections.

In addition, the library holds a large collection of national and international exhibition and auction catalogues as well as a wide selection of art periodicals. More than half of the volumes are recorded in the central catalogue of the cultural institutes of the state capital of Dusseldorf and can be researched on the internet.
