The exhibition so interesting and exquisite. They are also extremely well presented! The venue is also lovely with live music on a Friday night (which gives free entrance!) Not too crowded either even though I visited on a free evening!

The Morgan Museum and Library is still a sleeper, after nearly 100 years. Its new addition is airy and light, and there is always something to see that you have never thought about.
