The FDR Presidential Library and Museum is undergoing a major renovation, the first renovation since the building opened to the public in 1941. This renovation will bring the Library’s infrastructure up to National Archives standards for the preservation of historic collections and installing a new permament exhibition. From May 1, 2012 to June 30, 2013 while the permanent galleries are closed for the final stage of the renovation visitors can enjoy new photography and multimedia exhibition, “The Roosevelts: Public Figures, Private Lives.”

The Roosevelt Library archive is the premier research center in the world for study and research of the Roosevelt era.
