Visit Virtually

Biblioventures (Austen Mondays and Sundays With…)

What began as an early pandemic project has grown into the Rosenbach’s most popular virtual program! Each week, our program manager Edward G. Pettit hosts a weekly, interactive web series based off on a work of classic literature. Next up: Sherlock Mondays beginning on September 18, 2023. You can find past episodes of Austen Mondays and Sundays With… Dracula, Frankenstein, and Jane Eyre here.

The Rosenbach Podcast

Thousands of rare books, manuscripts, and works of art—some famous and some rarely seen—live within the walls of the Rosenbach, and each one has a story to tell. Listen to the Rosenbach Podcast.


The Rosenbach’s staff regularly contributes longform articles to the Rosenblog on a wide variety of topics. Read the Rosenblog.

Digital Exhibitions

Gallery Gateways are digital exhibitions that provide all of the content presented on-site in the Rosenbach’s exhibitions. The Gallery Gateway is a cross between traditional, printed museum exhibition catalogues and web-based virtual exhibitions. Learn more
