John D. Rockefeller Jr. Library Exhibits

The John D. Rockefeller Jr. Library maintains an exhibition space located in its main lobby that highlights the broad scope of its fascinating collections of rare books, manuscripts, newspapers, drawings, photographs, corporate archives, oral histories, and multimedia. Exhibits focus on a variety of topics ranging from eighteenth-century Williamsburg and colonial America to the history of the Restoration, major institutional anniversaries, and film and audio productions.

Recognizing that our audience cannot always visit in person, a new complementary digital component to the on-site exhibit space has been created. While not comprehensive in scope, the digital exhibits showcase selected items to allow those who cannot visit in person the opportunity to enjoy a virtual visit.
