LAST CHANCE: This is your last week to see the Library’s treasures, which have been on temporary view in the Erburu Gallery while the Main Exhibition Hall has been undergoing renovation. After next Monday—May 27—Audubon’s Birds of America, the Ellesmere Manuscript of Chaucer’s Canterbury Tales, and many other iconic books and manuscripts will go off view until Nov. 9, when the newly renovated Main Hall reopens with a dynamic new installation.
Visitors will still be able to see the Gutenberg Bible, which will move to its new temporary home in the Huntington Art Gallery on May 29. Look for it in the Thornton Portrait Gallery near another popular attraction, The Blue Boy.
Next Monday is Memorial Day. We want to remind you that we will be open, as we are on most Monday holidays. We’ll also be open earlier than usual—at 10:30 a.m. Our summer hours (10:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. daily, closed Tuesdays) will be in effect until Labor Day. You can check out our weekday and weekend hours here.
For information on events that require registration and/or additional fees, please check out the calendar on The Huntington’s website.
