How to find the Rose Archives
The entrance for the Rose Archives is located at 154 West 57th Street. If you're standing under the main marquee for Carnegie Hall (corner of 57th Street and 7th Avenue) looking towards the box office lobby, that's about three doors to the left, or east, towards 6th Avenue. Look for "Resnick Education Wing" on the glass above the door. Participants will enter through the public entrance for the Archives and congregate in the Archives Research Room. Coats, bags, and other belongings may be left in this room during the tour.
