We went to the Morgan because they were having an exhibit of plein air sketches done in the 1800s. What we found was the most amazing three-tiered library and rotunda which reminded me of Florence, Italy. I was amazed to set my eyes on one...More

Not many people talk about the Morgan Library and Museum - the only person to recommend it to me was my Gothic/Renaissance art teacher who specialized in illuminated manuscripts (of which the Morgan has an amazing collection). At $20, admission is pretty high, but it's...More

The building itself is a work of art. I could have spent ages looking at the ceiling in the library. The collection is really fantastic and I thoroughly enjoyed my visit.

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

I went when two galleries were closed so therefore there wasn’t much to see. I didn’t think there was enough bang for your buck here. It was cool to see the library and old books- but the Frankenstein special exhibit was not that engaging. Won’t...More

Don't know if it's an annual thing, but when we were there they had Charles Dickens handwritten manuscript of "A Christmas Carol" on display. Wow. The library itself is awe inspiring, definitely the best part. We took a docent guided tour of the special exhibit...More

My friend and I visited the Morgan for the first time this past Saturday to see “The Visitation” by Pontormo. We had discussed going several times and the painting was going back to Tuscany in 2 days. The painting was so much more than we...More
