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.

What a gem of a museum! Great location for a little culture, a little shopping and a little eating! Do not miss the personal library. Even reluctant readers can find something interesting here.

Charlotte Bronte's work and life are being exhibited. Always a lovely spot on a Friday night between 7pm and 9pm. Love the museum gift shop - one of the best in Manhattan. Highly recommended.

We kind of stumbled on this place when my sister saw pictures of this on a magazine. It is just gorgeous! The artwork, the decor, the books and the story are extremely interesting! It makes we want to learn more.
