Because of the refurbishment work of the Museum’s internal spaces, the Library is closed to the public until further notice.

The Museo Sefardí’s specialized library comprises a collection of almost 18,000 volumes and an important old collection temporarily housed at the Hospital de Tavera.

Linked to the Museo Sefardí, the library accompanies and serves the museum in its main objectives, providing technical processing and dissemination of monographs, periodicals, and reference works related to the specific areas of knowledge of the Hispano-Jewish and Sephardic history and cultures, as well as the city of Toledo.

It also has a significant collection specialized in museology and conservation as well as books related to art, ethnology, archaeology… and much more.
