The private library of financier Pierpont Morgan—now a museum, research library, music venue, architectural landmark, and historic site.
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
Атмосферное место,очень много интересных старых книг❤️
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!
Kesinlikle gitmenizi tavsiye ediyorum calisma odasi ve kutuphanesini gormelisiniz. Morgan dunyanin en buyuk koleksiyoncisudur oglu bir cogunu Moma , Metropolitan museum vs... yerlere bagislamistir.
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.
fascinating relic from the Paleotonic Age ...lol
Por quê a antiguidade é mais bela? Let's go!
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
Nice place to wile away some time on a winter day!!!
Such a lah die dah institution. Come for the Goyas
The library is astonishing; found the 2 hidden staircase behind the secret door bookshelves. Look up at Edgar Allan Poe's iron-designed ceiling room with 650 birds, each one is unique.
The Edgar Allan Poe exhibit. Outstanding.
Go on Fridays from 7-9pm. It's free! And don't forget to pick up a free audio tour; they're an excellent enhancement to this small, yet impressive collection.
You know you all want to come and visit JP Morgan's private library. You might find bailout money hidden between the stacks.
Take your time; this place is full of rare and stunning original manuscripts and letters.
The Morgan Library each holiday season displays its original manuscript of Charles Dickens’s immortal work, A Christmas Carol, which he wrote in 1843.
You can use your camera in most parts except special exhibitions. A pity that so many books are now locked away as display pieces. I doubt that many scholars will use them. Books should be read.
