The Morgan is a celebration of creativity. It houses an extensive collection of European and American books, manuscripts, drawings, photography, and other works of art.
It holds true to its roots to this day. Commissioning a library in the early 1900s to house his trove of growing art and literature, Pierpont Morgan’s tastes were extensive. The financier’s son built an annex to the library in 1928 with a public gallery.
The Library is part of the museum’s permanent collection, with rotating exhibitions in its multiple gallery spaces dispersed across three floors. Admission is free on Fridays from 7 to 9pm.
