Rosenbach Museum & Library
Business/organization type: 
The Rosenbach of the Free Library of Philadelphia seeks to inspire curiosity, inquiry, and creativity by engaging broad audiences in exhibitions, programs, and research based on its remarkable and expanding collections. The Rosenbach’s 1860s townhouse and garden provide an intimate setting for the brothers’ collections of rare books, manuscripts, furniture, silver, paintings, prints, drawings, and sculpture. The house is located in the heart of the Rittenhouse-Fitler historic district in Center City Philadelphia. Museum visitors enjoy regular exhibitions drawn from the Rosenbach’s impressive holdings. Selections from some of the best-known collections are always on view, including James Joyce’s manuscript for Ulysses and the papers of Modernist poet Marianne Moore. In the years since its founding, the Rosenbach collections have continued to grow.
