Stop 6. Gilbert Court



Colin B. Bailey, Director
In 2006, Renzo Piano created a ground-floor entrance along Madison Avenue. Visitors pass through the admissions area into a light-filled central piazza, surrounded by the Morgan’s historic buildings. The piazza is called the Gilbert Court, after S. Parker Gilbert, a past President of the Morgan’s Board of Trustees who championed the expansion of the museum’s campus.

From the court, visitors can choose to take a break in the café or to explore the historic Library, the Annex exhibition galleries, the modern Thaw and Engelhard Galleries, or the Morgan Shop in the brownstone.
