The Morgan Library And Museum, New York City Reviews - Write a Review
We really enjoyed this gem in the city. What a beautiful building! I really enjoyed browsing the titles one the shelves in Morgan’s office and library. It’s a ver impressive collection. The ceilings and attention to details is also impressive. Check the website before going- the library offers some free/discounted hours.
I'm loving this museum more and more as they continue to have interesting screenings and performances that complements the exhibits at the time and it changes frequently to keep people interested and intrigued. Neither the displayed works nor the performances are too specific in catering to a small minority of those who can comprehend but were welcoming to the general public who has any appreciation of the arts.
One of my favorite pieces in the library's permanent collection is its trove of Babylonian cuneiform cylinder seals. The clay seals are tiny but take a moment and look at a few with a magnifying glass - the designs are intricate and usher you into the ancient mythologies and daily practices of the ancient Mesopotamian cultures. Very cool. :-)
Beautiful, airy museum in a great location. Staff were friendly. It's quite a small museum, and the library and study are only open at certain times on certain days (4-6 pm on Sundays, for example) and those are the highlights. You can visit just those for free, or pay (13$ seniors and students, 20$ adults) for the full experience. There's currently a great exhibition on Thoreau, but aside from the study, library, and that one exhibit, the rest was a bit boring to me--I think it's geared more toward elderly people, because that was the majority of the population at the museum. The library itself is utterly magnificent. Loved it. In hindsight would visit just the library and study on a free day.
Every exhibition in the library is beyond my expectation. This one star is given so that the museum would notice the quality of their staff members when hiring. I was told by a Chinese staff who works in the gift shop with short hair to the neck that what I wore during my time at the library is ugly and shameful. I was wearing proper clothing and has been complimented by many people other than her. I find her comment very annoying, and this is extremely unprofessional for a staff member to say something like that. I only mentioned that she is Chinese because she emphasized that she as a "Chinese" feels ashamed by how I dress.
