The Morgan is an experience. As per its name, the Morgan used to be the home of J. Pierpont Morgan, millionaire financier of the late 19th and early 20th centuries. The Morgan specializes in manuscripts and paper arts and objects ranging from 9th century Coptic bookbinding to drawings by Leonardo da Vinci. That is not to say that all their things are that old; I've just seen these things in the storage rooms (and was nearly eviscerated by a curator for leaning on the da Vinci when in the conservation lab- hell, I didn't know what it was). The Morgan usually has some disparate but interesting exhibitions going on. Call ahead to find out what old treat is on view.
