A museum and independent research library located in the heart of New York City, the Morgan Library & Museum began as the personal library of financier, collector, and cultural benefactor Pierpont Morgan. As early as 1890 Morgan had begun to assemble a collection of illuminated, literary, and historical manuscripts, early printed books, and old master drawings and prints.

The Morgan Library & Museum
Just a short walk from Grand Central and Penn Station, the Morgan Library & Museum began as the private library of financier Pierpont Morgan, one of the preeminent collectors and cultural benefactors in the United States. Today, more than a century after its founding in 1906, the Morgan is a major exhibition venue for art, literature, and music, one of New York's great historic landmarks, and a wonderful place to dine, shop, and attend a concert or film.
