The museum offers free coat-check, audio-tours and guided tours in a lovely setting. Note that there are restrooms on the lower level and avoid those on the second floor. The dining room appeared somewhat crowded, expensive and very noisy.

When we walked in around 2pm, beautiful sounds of a cello and violin were echoing in the main entrance. The library is spectacular with fantastic collection highlights and the architecture itself is jaw-dropping. The study was also amazing with all of the pieces of art collected. Worth the visit. Check the special exhibits to entice you to visit as it was $20 per adult. If you are local, looks like some fabulous concerts during the week and late on Sundays.

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!!!
