Requesting a Research Visit

Our Reading Room is a great place to work: let us help you make the most of your time there.

The Archives is currently not accepting new appointments for research until late 2024.

The Reading Room at the Moravian Archives is open by appointment only, Monday-Thursday, 10:00 a.m. – 4:00 p.m.

Appointments are required for in-house researchers. To request an appointment:
