If you happen to be an art lover that prefers vintage exhibits or wants to see something unique from the history of artsб then the place for you is the Morgan Library & Museum. The establishment was founded by a financier J.P. Morgan whom the museum was named after, and the place became home for extraordinary collections of rare drawings, books, artifacts, manuscripts - things that represent a true delight for history of arts lovers. The collection first started with the pieces gathered out of hobby and passion by J.P Morgan and it continued to grow over the years.

After the recent renovation the museum has an additional performance hall where people can attend concerts. While you are there, don't forget to check out "The Little Prince" - A New York Story that has ties with the French children's book, the original manuscript of Charles Dickens' "A Christmas Carol" or the manuscript of Edgar Allan Poe's “Terror of the Soul”. If you are a Poe fan, you will love seeing some of the author's letters, early editions and manuscripts. However the grand piece of the collection is Leonardo da Vinci: his treasures from the Biblioteca Reale in Turin where you can see drawings, and notebooks of the great artist.
