The permanent display of the library and study are amazing. The temporary exhibits were very interesting and we'll displayed. The book collection is mind bogglingly huge. So glad we stumbled upon it.

I've gone by so many times and never gone inside - had no idea what I was missing. It's a beautiful place with so many surprises - collections of children's books in a wide variety of editions from different eras, for example. The library itself...More

A stunningly beautiful library, but more impressive still is the finest collection of books maybe anywhere. Get the audio tour. The displays are not well-explained. At $20 for a small museum, the price is steep, which may be what encourages so many people to go...More

Really enjoyed the history of this building. The architecture is brilliant. Look for the hidden staircases in the bookcases.

this place has illuminated manuscripts, original writings and always fascinating exhibits-a bit off the tourist lines, and well worth checking out

Beautiful library of J.P. Morgan. Exquisite detail in the woodwork. Some nice Ruben, Jean Corot. On display now is an exhibit about Tennessee Williams which was interesting - be sure to read the letter from hotel mgmt. :) Good restaurant on ground floor.
