Just a short walk from Grand Central and Penn Station, the Morgan is a major exhibition venue for fine art, literature, and music, one of New York's great historic sites, and a wonderful place to dine, shop, and attend a concert or film.

The Morgan is a wonderul place to visit as they hold great exhibits and of particular of interest to me are the Illuminated Manuscripts of the Middle Ages! Wonderful concerts as well.

The building perfectly blends the old and the new buildings. We were drawn this time by the Emily Dickenson exhibit and were not disappointed. But do not miss the old standards - the amazing manuscripts and plush surroundings and imposing portraits.

Have had the pleasure of visiting this venerable place a couple of times. I love that they've kept the older parts in good working order while providing modern conveniences like a glass-enclosed elevator. I look forward to dining there on my next visit.

We have been to the Morgan before but are always thrilled to return. There is so much to see - not just the exhibits and special exhibitions - but the architecture and design features of the buildings.

It had been nearly 20 years since I had last visited the museum. It is a bit pricey for its size ($20 adult) but worth doing. We had hoped to get there early enough for the restaurant week 3-course lunch but ended up getting there...More
