Manx National Heritage Library & Archive

Type:Museum

National Library and Archive at the Manx Museum

About

For over a century manuscripts, maps and plans, photographs, prints, film, sound and published works have been actively collected and preserved on behalf of the people of the Isle of Man.

These provide a rich resource of information on all aspects of Manx archaeological, cultural and environmental heritage for school projects, academic researchers, family historians, publishers and broadcasters and the general enquirer.

Situated at the Manx Museum, the National Library and Archives is a free facility, and every year many thousands of people make use of it for their research.

On your first visit to the National Library and Archives you will be asked to complete a registration form and provide proof of your identity showing your current address (if you are under 16 we will also need a consent form signed by your parent or guardian). 

Research

Due to the volume of enquiries received and limited staff and resources, the Manx National Heritage Library & Archive are unable to offer a research service to enquirers, and we recommend off Island researchers arrange for a local agent to work on their behalf. The library can help by providing lists of genealogists and land record researchers including the Isle of Man Family History Society.
