Overview

The building housing the Pierpont Morgan Library Museum and research facility was constructed by J.P. Morgan Sr., who was one of the richest men in the country. It opened to the public in 1924, and much later the adjacent private home of J. Pierpont Morgan Jr. was absorbed by the museum. A national landmark, the exhibition room showcases rare manuscripts and books - a grand variety of works by musicians, writers, artists and more, including Bach, Hemingway and Rembrandt. The extent of the collection could overwhelm, except that Morgan only shows off the right amount of wares from the permanent collection, enticing one to come back for more. Visiting the study where J.P. Morgan spent much of his time is a must, along with the expansive library across the grandiose marble hall. Differing programs are offered year round, plus there’s a small cafe, garden court, dining room and extensive gift shop.
