Celebrate the restoration of the garden of J. Pierpont Morgan’s Library with free museum admission and family activities. Pick up a copy of the new Morgan Garden Family Guide and explore the new outdoor space.

From 12-3 pm, write your own unique verses inspired by great writers such as Gwendolyn Brooks and James Joyce on the Morgan’s Poetry Wall, see The Grand Falloons company performs live magic, juggling, and balloon animal sculpting, pose as pioneering Black museum director Belle da Costa Greene using a head-in-the-hole board created by artist Pam Koehler and craft your own lion flower for the Morgan Garden.

Multi-instrumentalists Dennis Lichtman and Jerron Paxton perform early to mid-1900s American music. Celebrate authors and imagery from the Morgan’s collection with live readings of picture books. Enjoy Beautiful Blackbird by Ashley Bryan, We Are Shining by Gwendolyn Brooks, and P is for Pterodactyl by Chris Carpenter and Raj Haldar.

Also explore the stunning former private library of Gilded Age financier Morgan, joined with other historic buildings and modern steel-and-glass pavilions and see current exhibitions.
