We visited for the Bronte and Luther exhibits and had lunch in the cafe. It was a Saturday morning and a bit crowded but lovely. The place is an interesting mix of contemporary setting and classic Wall Street mogul architecture.

The Morgan Library & Museum was fascinating! We had a few hours to fill between events and I spotted this 6 blocks from us. It was worth the walk and our time. The books, antiquities, art and sculptures he collected in his (very rich) lifetime were fascinating. Our friend (a history teacher) was beside herself when viewing the ancient cylindrical... More

The museum offers free coat-check, audio-tours and guided tours in a lovely setting. Note that there are restrooms on the lower level and avoid those on the second floor. The dining room appeared somewhat crowded, expensive and very noisy.

When we walked in around 2pm, beautiful sounds of a cello and violin were echoing in the main entrance. The library is spectacular with fantastic collection highlights and the architecture itself is jaw-dropping. The study was also amazing with all of the pieces of art collected. Worth the visit. Check the special exhibits to entice you to visit as it... More

The Library space is very interesting but you must peruse the variety of books titles that are present. A beautiful depository of a wealth of printed books.

This is a gorgeous museum on 36th and Madison, the former mansion of J.P. Morgan. Must see features are Mr. Morgan's sumptuous study and library, which displays the rare specimens he collected, books as well as music scores. The museum generally has an excellent literary-type exhibit based on its holdings, Alice in Wonderland, for example.The current exhibit is devoted to... More

Still a "well kept secret" this Is the kind of places that make NYC a unique place for visitors and AN inexhaustible attraction menu. The former JP Motgan's house, shows his tasteful prívate office and an out of this world prívate library showing pieces of sacred art and incredible book collection not to be missed.

This is not a big place. The former residence of a rich man and collector, Morgan Museum hosts different exhibits on a regular basis. It's regular collection is not big and consists of several rooms open for viewing and personal collection of Mr. Morgan. The lovely garden adjacent to the house, provides a nice place for a respite. The most... More

The historical part was cool, but the art collection wasn't my taste/interest. The architecture of the library itself was unique - the Guttenberg Bible and First Folio of Shakespeare were impressive.

Staying in Midtown

Neighbourhood Profile
Midtown
This is the iconic New York that so many visitors imagine before they visit—spectacular skyscrapers like the Chrysler Building and Empire State Building, iconic public buildings like Grand Central Terminal and the New York Public Library, and the non-stop hustle and bustle of the city streets. Fifth Avenue is a shopper's heaven where you can find every kind of store imaginable, with fashion brands ranging from the affordable to the ultra-fancy. Visit the Rockefeller Center to experience towering Art Deco grandeur, and foodies will love the busy restaurants that stay open late in Koreatown. After dark, Midtown calms down a bit, but at any time of day or night it still feels 100% New York.
