I enjoy visiting the Morgan Library & Museum for the well researched and artfully displayed exhibits. From what I've seen I would guess that the Morgan owns artifacts comparable to any fine museum in Europe. It's impressive. In addition one can do a comprehensive visit in little more than two hours. The cafe menu is quite satisfying and I enjoy the gift shop.
This is the perfect not overcrowded museum to visit in NY, even on Friday afternoons when it's free (7-9pm). The line was very short and at 7 sharp we where let inside the Museum. The library is super beautiful, reminded me of my Disney days as it has a Beauty and the Beast vibe. Totally recommended, especially if you often visit the city and are running low on ideas.
