The Morgan Library & Museum to Restore McKim Building

The Morgan Library & Museum’s McKim building will undergo the most extensive restoration of its interior spaces since its construction more than one hundred years ago.

Providing new and expanded exhibition space for the institution, the project will enable the Morgan to share more treasures from its world-renowned permanent collection with the public.

The building, designed by the firm of McKim, Mead, and White, was once the private study and library of financier Pierpont Morgan. It is considered one of New York’s great architectural treasures and its interiors are regarded as some of the most beautiful in America. The building will reopen to the public on Saturday, October 30. All other areas of The Morgan Library & Museum will remain fully operational during the course of the project.
