Library Exhibition Hall

Library Exhibition Hall

The Huntington Library is one of the world's great independent research libraries, with more than nine million items spanning the 11th to 21st centuries. Only a small portion of the vast collection is on display at any one time; ongoing exhibitions, Remarkable Works, Remarkable Times in the Main Exhibition Hall, and Beautiful Science: Ideas that Changed the World in the Dibner Hall of the History of Science. Temporary themed exhibitions are presented in the smaller West Hall.
