Located in midtown Manhattan, the Morgan houses a fabulous collection with seasonal showings that diplay the depth of works in their collection. We saw the original draft of "A Christmas Carol" on our recent December visit, along with Lincoln's notes for the Douglas debate, a Gutenberg Bible, and other fascinating first editions. Curators do an excellent job of putting the works into context, for example, noting that Dickens wrote "A Christmas Carol" in October and it was still able to be published for the upcoming Christmas season.
This museum is "off the radar" compared to other NYC offerings yet provides a glimpse into the rarified beauty and insight of a wealthy collector. Your visit will be short, yet illuminating to curious visitors of all ages.
