The Library space is very interesting but you must peruse the variety of books titles that are present. A beautiful depository of a wealth of printed books.

This is a gorgeous museum on 36th and Madison, the former mansion of J.P. Morgan. Must see features are Mr. Morgan's sumptuous study and library, which displays the rare specimens he collected, books as well as music scores. The museum generally has an excellent literary-type exhibit based on its holdings, Alice in Wonderland, for example.The current exhibit is devoted to the Brontes and features portraits and original manuscripts loaned by the Haworth Parsonage. Next up is Emily Dickinson, beginning in January. The Cafe is very attractive and features exceptional cuisine. If you like the Frick, this Museum is for you!!!

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).
