Library

The Finnish Heritage Agency Library is a research library open to all, specialising in cultural heritage.

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, customer service and self-service at the Finnish Heritage Agency Library have been suspended from 30 November 2020 to 30 April 2021. Contact the library for more information (kirjasto@museovirasto.fi)

We provide information on archaeology and history, ethnology and museology, building preservation, restoration and conservation as well as art history and the history of artefacts.

You can borrow material from the library with a Helka card. Borrowing e-books requires you to log into the service in the Finnish Heritage Agency Library. The library’s materials are included in the Helka collection database.

The library is a self-service library, but services are available from the library, picture collections and archive’s joint Customer Service desk, as well as by reserving an appointment with library staff.

You can now manage your loans and reservations in the new Helka-database.
