Morgan Library & Museum

Murray Hill
Museum

Often overlooked in favor of the city’s major institutions, this hidden gem gives visitors a glimpse into the former office and library of tycoon J.P. Morgan, who was a major collector of rare books, illuminated manuscripts, and fine art. The exquisite Italian Renaissance–inspired building by McKim, Mead & White is a sight to behold, and book-themed temporary exhibits are mounted in the Renzo Piano–designed expansion.
