Still a "well kept secret" this Is the kind of places that make NYC a unique place for visitors and AN inexhaustible attraction menu. The former JP Motgan's house, shows his tasteful prívate office and an out of this world prívate library showing pieces of sacred art and incredible book collection not to be missed.

This is not a big place. The former residence of a rich man and collector, Morgan Museum hosts different exhibits on a regular basis. It's regular collection is not big and consists of several rooms open for viewing and personal collection of Mr. Morgan. The lovely garden adjacent to the house, provides a nice place for a respite. The most impressive part of the museum is the library. Overall, it is a worthwhile to visit. Also, they have tea services (check the website for times).

The historical part was cool, but the art collection wasn't my taste/interest. The architecture of the library itself was unique - the Guttenberg Bible and First Folio of Shakespeare were impressive.

What a gem of a museum! Great location for a little culture, a little shopping and a little eating! Do not miss the personal library. Even reluctant readers can find something interesting here.

The temporary exhibits here show great scholarship, understanding, and depth of collections. They combine the best of the Morgan's collections and its ability to borrow from the best museums in the world. In November 2016 we saw the Martin Luther exhibit that featured contemporary portraits of Luther, many original documents written by him, and pamphlets printed during his break from the Roman Catholic Church.

The other excellent temporary exhibit was a collection of Dubuffet paintings.

Be sure to visit Morgan's enormous office and the library opposite it. Morgan bought amazing things. The library had the original manuscript of Dickens' A Christmas Carol on display.

The Morgan is a small, intimate, and quiet place for observation and reflection.
