Dickens's Original Manuscript of A Christmas Carol Also on View
The Morgan Library & Museum offers a full program of festive holiday activities including concerts, family fun day, and special holiday shopping and dining—all to complement a spectacular array of exhibitions, the newly restored 1906 library, and the annual special exhibition of the original manuscript of Charles Dickens's A Christmas Carol.
The Morgan kicks off the holiday season with an exciting Winter Family Day on Sunday, December 5, and a new exhibition, Great European Libraries: Photographs by Massimo Listri, opens Friday, December 10.
Don't miss the final month of the extraordinary exhibitions, Mark Twain: A Skeptic's Progress, and Roy Lichtenstein: The Black-and-White Drawings, 1961–1968—both on view through January 2. Also enjoy a beautiful exhibition of Edgar Degas's drawings and sketchbooks through January 23.
Visitors can also marvel at the newly restored original 1906 library, where hundreds of the Morgan's most treasured objects have been installed, including the annual display of Charles Dickens's holiday classic A Christmas Carol, on view through January 9.
The Morgan Shop—a unique retail experience unlike any other in New York—will be open every day, including Mondays*, beginning November 29 through Christmas Eve. Hailed by The New York Times and Zagat for its unusual and hard-to-find items related to the museum's renowned collections, Monday shoppers are rewarded with a ten percent discount between Thanksgiving and Christmas Eve.
The Morgan offers two dining options for visitors. The Morgan Café offers a casual dining atmosphere in the glass-enclosed central court, evoking European alfresco dining. The Morgan's Dining Room is located in the restored nineteenth-century brownstone, the original Morgan family dining room. The menu features early-twentieth-century American cuisine. Full menus to the café and the dining room are available here. *The museum and galleries are closed on Mondays.
