Starting out as the private library of famed financier J.P. Morgan, The Morgan Library and Museum is now cultural touchstone for the city. Originally intended as a repository for rare materials, The Morgan Library and Museum continues in this fine tradition with its unique artifacts carefully acquired over the decades.
The collection includes such rarities as early printed books, featuring the work of such notables as Lord Byron, ancient engraved seals acquired personally by Morgan himself, as well as music manuscripts, including a composition signed by Mozart himself. The Morgan Library and Museum also does quite a bit of conversation work, including famed literary works, paintings, and woodcuts. Admission is free on select days, making this treasure trove of unique historical items accessible to all.
