The New York Philharmonic Archives, which serves as a repository for more than 165 years of Philharmonic history, is one of the oldest and most important orchestral research collections in the world. It traces the entire history of the Philharmonic and its more than 15,000 performances around the world and is an important record of cultural history in New York City.

Researchers, students, musicians, and the general public are all welcome to come and explore this valuable collection. As well, the archives welcomes enquiries via email and mail and, depending on the amount of time required, will, in most cases, answer the question.
