    Make sure you check out the secret staircases in the main library! Look for dolphin handles on the bookcases that flank the entrance. If you go during a tour they might open them up for you!

    Check out what exhibits they have before going. This is not going to be a typical museum with a collection that's worth seeing everyday. There are many good special exhibits however

    Beautiful library! Try to do the guided tour and you will learn a lot about the history of this place. Gutenberg's Bible is one of their highlights.

    One of the three copies of the printed Gutenberg Bible is really worth seeing! They also have Mozart's notes. To be so close to the history is breathtaking.

    Come here on a Friday evening, get a cocktail and a bite to eat at the cafe, listen to some live classical music, and then check out the library and museum (free entry from 7-9 pm) :)

    Built between 1902 and 1906, the library features towering triple tiers of bookcases made of bronze and inlaid Circassian walnut. J.P. Morgan Jr. gave his father's library to the public in 1924. Read more

    Excellent Library & museum, phenomenal architectural design, and a structurally solid building

  • Alexandria P.

    While the glass elevator ride offers a delightful and brief moment of perspective, the path of stairs often have some interesting artwork

  • Scott G.

    Underrated gem in midtown

    Scott Gellman · January 11
  • John A.

    Historical landmark in NYC, beautiful structure, Guttenberg Bible, and a sense of what a wealthy financier was like. After Morgan passed away, the Frick bought many pieces to add to their collection.

  • Wilson Z.

    It's more than a museum, an institution of historical home of Morgan family and well selected exhibits, concerts, talks, films. A great venue for cultural enrichment. It's worth being a member.

    Wilson Zhou · September 1, 2014
  • Justin O.

    The museum had the distinction of having many rare books, first editions and two Gutenberg bibles.

    One of the most impressive art collections in the world, set in a classic Renzo Piano building addition.

    The Morgan is one of those little known gems in Manhattan that thrives on presenting some of the most amazing pieces of written art in the world.

    The Morgan Library is a beautiful example of New York City Gilded Age architecture, with a number of exhibition spaces for rotating art displays.

    My friend Andrew says, "I'm not big on the Met. I'd take a quiet hour at The Morgan instead."

    The map is confusing but the guards are friendly - ask them for help. :o)

    The women's bathroom on the first floor has a diaper changing area.

    Stunning and inspiring old-New-York estate. Admire the ancient seals and vaults of historical volumes. From animals in fiction to A Little Prince, the exhibition topics are also reliably engaging.

    Photography room: read the instructions to your left. Changes the entire experience 👍

    They're kind of arbitrary in their bizarre coat policy (you either have to check it or wear it... Except when you don't)

    Bring your student ID, and the audio tour is not worth it, though it is free.

    See The Little Prince exhibit before it leaves!
