The private library of financier Pierpont Morgan—now a museum, research library, music venue, architectural landmark, and historic site.
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!
The library is beautiful -- Italian Renaissance architecture. Get into the museum free on Fridays after 7pm.
Free admission after 7pm Fridays.
Ernest Hemingway exhibit going on now
Beautiful little museum. Go on Fridays from 7-9 when they have their free hours!
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.
A must for all book lovers! The studio features a painting by Cima da Conegliano ❤️
A must for all book lovers! In the studio a painting by Cima da CoConegli
J.P. Morgan's renaissance library is awe inspiring
The Alice in Wonderland exhibition was interesting
Beautiful artifacts and architecture and a lovely cafe make for a delightful couple hours
Very beautiful and preserved library.
Free on Fridays 7-9pm otherwise $18
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) :)
Fantastic museum with a great collection rotation and special exhibits.
Lincoln Speaks is a must see. The permanent collection is also stunning.
Free Friday night after 7
Another treasure of NY in midtown...Go!
Permanent collection is free 4-6 on Sunday's. Cafe closes at 4 so show up a few minutes early & enjoy a cuppa or cocktail before exploring
Excellent Library & museum, phenomenal architectural design, and a structurally solid building
While the glass elevator ride offers a delightful and brief moment of perspective, the path of stairs often have some interesting artwork
Underrated gem in midtown
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.
Imagine to be the librarian of this place... Fascinating!
Fabulous permanent, rotating, and traveling exhibits. Some of the rotating items include US treasures such as early drafts of founding documents.
This place is so amazing it's unreal
Live classical music on Friday nights. Also free admission on Fridays from 7-9p.m.
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.
The museum had the distinction of having many rare books, first editions and two Gutenberg bibles.
#Free admission on Friday after 7pm. Great way to start the night with a little culture.
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!
Couldn't find the ATM
A must see in NYC
