This is a lovely museum. Not too big. Beautiful, impressive small art collection. Lovely, interesting building. Hand-Writing Exhibit was fun. An Oasis in the middle of NYC. Calming, friendly place. Not for young children. Best for teens and older. This place is a hidden gem....More

JP Morgan's office & library are kept as they were and interesting for history buffs. Autograph show was special exhibit, and had signatures from Elizabeth I to Beatles.
