We visited here to see the beautiful library and study. The gift shop was great. There were two exhibits in the exhibit spaces, neither of which we found very compelling, not even very complementary to the collection.

I had never been to the Morgan Library. The Morgan here refers to a capitalist that build his library and decorated it with precious archeological artifacts he collected and passed on to his family and now to us for a peek on the life of the rich and famous. The place is like an European library in a palace--LOTS of... More

I didn't do any research and merely stumbled upon the museum on my way to the hotel from the airport. After dropping my bags at the hotel, I immediately back-tracked my way to the museum. It is a quaint and quiet museum. Everyone respect the space and the environment, even children were looking around quietly. I love that! Everything in... More

The Morgan Library hosts a collection of the printed word that impresses and amazes. There are Gutenberg Bibles, Isaac Newton notebooks, and JS Bach compositions to name just a few. The building itself is a sight to behold. Between the books, documents, and art, you'll be sure to enjoy a visit here. My only complaint is the $20 entry fee.... More

My friend and I went to the library and were fascinated by the original documents such as one of the Gutenberg Bibles and original scores by classical composers.

A great new addition to a great old building. We enjoyed seeing the beautiful library and the private rooms that have been restored. There was a children's festival and the place was filled with coloring and laughter. WHAT A GREAT DAY!

Wish I had more time to visit. Stopped in for a quick 1 1/2 hour look while in NYC for an interview. Amazing library - could have spent all day there. Art collections/exhibits were unique and interesting. Museum shop was lovely.

We were visiting NYC as we do about every other year and read a review of the Emily Dickinson exhibit which is at the Morgan for the next few months. It was wonderful and gave us new appreciation of her life. We were also enchanted by the setting which is spectacular and the many manuscripts in the permanent collection. We... More

Staying in Midtown

Neighbourhood Profile
Midtown
This is the iconic New York that so many visitors imagine before they visit—spectacular skyscrapers like the Chrysler Building and Empire State Building, iconic public buildings like Grand Central Terminal and the New York Public Library, and the non-stop hustle and bustle of the city streets. Fifth Avenue is a shopper's heaven where you can find every kind of store imaginable, with fashion brands ranging from the affordable to the ultra-fancy. Visit the Rockefeller Center to experience towering Art Deco grandeur, and foodies will love the busy restaurants that stay open late in Koreatown. After dark, Midtown calms down a bit, but at any time of day or night it still feels 100% New York.
