Beautiful library and art museum. There's a vault that contains priceless books. JP Morgan collected artifacts and jewelry from different ancient civilizations that were on display. $20/adult, children 12 & under - free. There's a cute cafe inside a glass room and a gift shop.

I've been here a few times for corporate events. I've also had the opportunity for a private tour. This is a beautiful space for events and the like. If you can get a private tour go for it.

Went to see the "Making of a Monster" exhibit about the writing of and development of the Frankenstein character. Fascinating. Then walked through the few rooms of the J. Pierpoint Mansion that are open to the public. Very interesting.

The Pierpont Morgan Library is a great find. Current exhibit on Frankenstein is well worth it, but I think the museum would be a great place to visit regardless of what they are exhibiting. Fascinating collection in a beautiful, historic location.

This is an interesting museum worth a visit. The owner of the place was an industrialist who collected rare old books and art. Very nice ambiance and exhibits. Very cozy too.

Even if the art doesn't interest you it's still worth a visit. The beautiful atrium is so inviting, galleries are interesting, and old library rooms are stunning! -fun evening events too!

If you love books you’ll love spending a couple of hours here. Additionally, a visit is well worth your time if you appreciate architecture and meaningful decorative frescos. One doubts that the current crop of billionaires will leave anything nearly as worthwhile in their wake.
