Great collections deserve to be displayed in great buildings and the Metropolitan Museum of Art fills the bill on both counts. How can you visit New York and not visit the Metropolitan? Just standing in the impressive Great Hall is an experience. Their collections of art from ancient to Impressionist to modern, the sculpture, the textiles, the prints....no matter what... More

As always, great exhibits, wonderful spaces. Never visit NYC without a tour of MMOA. Yoko Ono was there, S America architecture, Starry Night, wonder photographs.

Many exhibits and things to see! They have the option of requesting a guide or taking the self-guided audio tour. There is a cafe downstairs and fine dining on the second floor. Allow from opening to closing to spend time getting to everything. Overall, a great day (especially if it's raining). Would definitely go again.

One of the greatest museums in the world. We were there for a Bible based tour and were not disappointed. Just fabulous. We have been to the British Museum and the Louvre. This is every bit as good, but it cannot be seen in a day, perhaps even days. Not to be missed!

The Egyptian wing is a must see and the clothing academy in the basement floor is also a must do. Go during Christmas time to see the big origami tree and when you are tired sit on the steps with a NY hotdog a,d people watch!

The collection of art is vast and can interest anyone for at least a few hours at a time. My children enjoy the experience too. Don't skip it!
