This little gem is located in Murray Hill. As a neighbor, I visit it from time-to-time. I enjoy the architecture and design of the building. The collection on display isn't so extensive requiring hours to visit. The only negative was the price seems high for...More

They have three Gutenberg bibles, and one is almost always displayed, for that alone I would go. I wish one was able to see more of the books in the collection. The rotating exhibits were also very good. My biggest problem is the price. It...More

Service at this joint is deeply amateurish. You wait a long time even to get noticed. Your stuff takes ages to arrive. A second round drinks order is carelessly forgotten. When you remind them, they bring the wrong thing - but rather than wait another...More

If you want to see what banking money can do, visit the Morgan Library and let your library fantasies grow. Part personal library and private collection of Mr Morgan and part art museum, it's a quaint way to spend a couple of hours if you...More

There was plenty to see here and it was not desperately crowded. Doable in 1-2 hours unlike larger scale attractions.

The building is stunning and the collection is impressive. Special events happen frequently. Entrance fee is a little high, but depending on the event, can be worthwhile.
