Surprised by how cool this place is. Probably a better collection here than in all the art spaces combined where I’m from (Seattle). Had a great time here on a Friday night with live music and drinks in the foyer. I saw a spectacular show of Wayne Thibaud, and variety of other art in the shows here. Would definitely come back in future trips to NYC!
The Morgan Library & Museum is one of my favorite museums. I have seen exhibitions devoted to Emily Dickinson (one of my favorite poets), Charlotte Brontë, the American Civil War, and others over the years. Each time I visit The Morgan, I also get to behold its exquisite library—one that I would so desire for myself as I adore books. Also on display are some manuscripts, including some illuminated ones.
Pretty cool exhibits, and a little insight into how the ultra wealthy lived back in day off JP Morgan. I went on a Friday evening and it was free from 7-9. The Frankenstein exhibit was pretty interesting, but the study and library filled with rare books was way cooler.
Exquisite place. The unique art collection and library of 19th century industrialist J. P. Morgan is just the start of this wonderful experience. The Morgan always has incredible temporary exhibitions too. And not only do they have great art, they also have great food. The menu here is delightful.
Beautiful library, artifacts and architecture. Great history on Morgan family legacy. Friday eve 7 to 9 are free. Also with student discount, it's only 13 dollars. Red study room is magnificent.
