Message from the Director

Colin B. Bailey, Director of the Morgan in the East RoomThe Morgan Library & Museum is so pleased to reopen its doors to the resilient citizens of New York City and beyond with a free opening weekend September 5 and 6, 2020, and with advanced access for Morgan Members September 2 to 4, 2020. These past few months have encouraged us to look deep into our collections and programs, and have reaffirmed the value of art and literature as windows into our best selves and our shared humanity.

We look forward to welcoming visitors back to engage with our collections of literature, music, photography, drawing, and more. We are confident that with vigilance, respect, and awareness of the new protocols for navigating the Morgan, we can continue to offer meaningful and uplifting experiences for all who visit as we continue to chart our way during these unprecedented times.

Advanced registration for the Member Preview is now available. All other tickets go on sale Wednesday, August 26, 2020. Opening hours will be Wednesday through Sunday from 10:30am to 5pm with 10:30am to 11:30am on Wednesday and Saturdays reserved for Members. I am also pleased to let you know that our popular “Free Fridays” program will continue from 3pm to 5pm every Friday afternoon.

We have missed you all tremendously, and we look forward to seeing you in person very soon. To plan your visit, review our safety protocols, and learn more, please visit this page.

Warm regards,

Colin B. Bailey
