Just a short walk from Grand Central and Penn Station, the Morgan is a major exhibition venue for fine art, literature, and music, one of New York's great historic sites, and a wonderful place to dine, shop, and attend a concert or film.

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
