Q: What is the Bentley Rare Book Museum?

It offers a new model for engaging with special collections through interactive, rotating exhibits, robust programming, and a focus on campus and community outreach. Founded in 1987 as a gallery, the Museum holds over 10,000 rare items that chart the history of the book in the English-speaking world.
The Museum opens to all visitors Tuesday to Friday, 10:00 AM to 4:00 PM.
