I was there for a concert, I wish I had more time to explore the exhibits. They DID offer some exhibits to concert goers before and after the show. What I saw was fantastic, will definitely be back to take it all in. Staff was above friendly and helpful.

A special exhibition of the paintings and drawings from the Tennir collection, now part of the Swedish national Museum, was a total delight. The drawings were especially fine and paintings by Chardin and Boucher were beautiful discoveries.

The highlight of our recent visit to NYC. The museum is the converted home of J. P. Morgan and contains his library with a amazing collection of books and paintings. A notebook by Isaac Newton on his discovery of the light spectrum, fragments of cuneform tablets and the wonderful premanent exhibits were superb. We had lunch in the formal sit-down... More

I just fell into this place, and I loved it. I especial;ly liked the history of the place and he people who lived there through the years. It's a great stop, no matter wat you are doing in the city.

This is heaven for book-lovers and anyone interested in history. Seeing Morgan's study and library was a treat--it immediately brings you back in time--and the exhibits are well-presented.

J.P. Morgan used part of his vast fortune to acquire a spectacular collection of works of art, now housed in the library and museum that bear his name. In addition to the permanent collection, we also enjoyed a selection of works on loan from the National Museum of Sweden when we were there, highlighting (among other things) half a dozen... More

We have gone one excellent tour. The exhibit on Hemingway even had Fitzgerald's comments on early manuscripts. JP Morgan's personal library and his collection is fascinating. While much of it is in storage, the 3 main rooms with the permanent collection take about an hour. The special exhibits are a delight and will show a rare combination of items, well... More

Currently, there is an exhibit of the work of Emily Dickenson, the poet. You must check what is being shown here. It varies a lot.

Staying in Midtown

Neighborhood 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 paradise where you can find every kind of store imaginable, with fashion brands ranging from the affordable to the ultra-fancy. Visit 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.
