why you shouldn’t miss this

In 1924, JP Morgan Jr. gave his father's vast and extraordinary library to the public. This donation included the rare books, manuscripts, drawings, prints, and ancient artifacts that form the core of The Morgan Library & Museum's collection today. The Morgan Library & Museum takes you on a journey of literary excellence; the rarity and quality of the collections here elevate the experience and give you a personal feel. Their amazing exhibitions showcase some of the best artwork from across the globe. A variety of musical performances, lectures, readings, films, family programs, and tours complement the ongoing exhibitions.

Some of the biggest highlights include Mozart’s music manuscripts, a fragment of Edgar Allen Poe’s Tamerlane, a letter from George Washington to James Madison, the Lindau Gospels, and William Shakespeare’s comedies, histories & tragedies: published according to the true original copies.

your experience

Renovated by famed Italian architect and engineer, Renzo Piano, between 2000-2006, the building is beautiful and a work of art in its own right. Feel free to explore the museum at your own pace, and see JP Morgan’s library and study, which remains exactly the way it used to look.

Be sure to check out the paintings of Picasso, Rembrandt, Degas, Cézanne, Gauguin, van Gogh, Matisse, and Pollock, and Charles Dickens’ hand-written notes, among other cultural treasures! While the museum is smaller than the others, its collection is astounding, and something you just cannot miss!
