The Morgan Library and Museum has two parts--just like it sounds, the library and museum. The library is in the historic Pierpont Morgan mansion and you're able to walk through several rooms on the ground floor, which include things like Morgan's enormous desk and walls covered with multiple levels of bookshelves. A great look at how the 1% (or .1%) lived a hundred years ago. The museum part is in an utterly modern, glass-walled, light-filled building adjacent to the historic one and contains a few small galleries. There is almost always something interesting and/or beautiful on exhibit, and there's a pleasant cafe on the first floor. Well worth visiting if your're in the neighborhood (on Madison and 37th).
