Visitor InformationThis is an exciting time at the FDR Presidential Library and Museum. We are undergoing a major renovation -- the first renovation since the building opened to the public in 1941 -- bringing the Library's infrastructure up to National Archives standards for the preservation of historic collections and installing a new permament exhibition. From May 1, 2012 to June 30, 2013 -- while the permanent galleries are closed for the final stage of the renovation -- visitors will enjoy our exciting new photography and multimedia exhibition, "The Roosevelts: Public Figures, Private Lives." See Public Programs for information on upcoming events at the Museum.
