This highly regarded institution houses an outstanding collection containing rare books, manuscripts, scores, drawings, artworks and precious objects assembled by finance baron and collector J. Pierpont Morgan (1837-1913). His son, Jr, brought these wonderful collections, enriched since then by private gifts, into the public domain. The holdings are housed in several buildings, including Jr's old home, linked by a contemporary structure designed by Renzo Piano.
