The service of the National Archives is unfortunately only possible in a very limited way because of construction and moving work in the Siegfried Wagner House in connection with the reorganization of the Richard Wagner Museum in the first half year of 2015. Of course we will accept and handle enquiries and picture orders as far as at all possible.

For the time from 01 January to 30 June 2015, however, we especially cannot accept any application for research stays and the presentation of archive material.

We hope you will understand.

Due to upcoming renovation and remodeling of the Richard Wagner Museum the house Wahnfried is actually completely closed. However, the archives, picture library, and administration are accessible. Appointment scheduling in advance is indispensable.

Because of the removal of our objects and autograph collection to outlying depots unfortunately loans for exhibitions etc. are meanwhile not possible. We therefore ask you to refrain from any loan requests so far. Many thanks for your understandig.
