Visiting the Archives

The Curtis Archives are open Monday to Friday from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. during the school year and Monday to Thursday from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m in the summer. Visits are by appointment only. The Archives are located in the Rock Resource Center at 1720 Locust Street, Philadelphia. Researchers must bring current photo identification and sign a registration form in which they agree to observe the use and reproduction policy  and rules for using the collections.

We encourage all patrons visiting the Archives to consult our collections in person. For those unable to do so, please direct any questions to the archivist. We endeavor to answer all inquiries in the order of receipt within two weeks.  For general Curtis inquiries please also consult our FAQs and our online resources on the history of the Curtis Institute of Music
