Due to the strengthened measures of the Vigipirate Plan, researchers wishing to access the Library and Documentation are requested to enter via 62 rue de Lille, as the Montherlant entrance will be closed until further notice. You should also make sure not to carry oversized baggage.
Thank you for your understanding.
The archive and the library were created before the museum opened to the public, and are reference tools for art historians specialising in the second half of the 19th century. These two entities within the research department are responsible for disseminating and promoting the documentary collections through research projects, and encouraging collaboration with other institutions.The Prix du Musée d'Orsay, is an annual award for the publication of a selected thesis.
