Why locals love it

The museum consists of Pierpont Morgan’s collection of illuminated, literary, and historical manuscripts, early printed books, and old master drawings and prints. A collection of ancient seals, tablets, and papyrus fragments from Egypt and the Near East are on exhibition showing the earliest evidence of writing. There is a café but it's pricy.

Why you should visit it

The Morgan Library & Museum is the only institution in the world to possess three copies of the Gutenberg Bible, the first substantial book printed from movable type in the West. It is a book lovers wonderland where the focus on the written word, the history of the book, and master drawings has been maintained.

Special tip

Admission is free on Fridays from 2 p.m. to 5 p.m. Admission is not required to visit the Morgan Shop, Morgan Dining Room, and Morgan Café.
