This Is an amazing museum. There are collections from several countries and several periods. Plan a full day to see this, this is the minimum to see all the exhibits. City pass works here.

I went to NYC for this museum. I was not disappointed. It was wonderful. I only had a very limited time to explore the museum but what I saw blew me away. There is free coat cheek which was nice in Dec! The cafeteria was overpriced, the food was decent but way over priced. Grab something to eat outside the... More

There can be no doubt that the Met is one of the top places that you must visit in NYC. You can shop anywhere, but you can't see some of the world's (not just NY's) greatest works of arts other than in a few places. This is one of them!

This place has so many exhibits to visit, and they are all family friendly. There is so much to look at, all art from different countries, cultures, time periods. Fascinating. It left me wanting to come back for more.

We recently went on a bus trip to NYC from SE Connecticut. We opted for the Met to visit as we had never been there. We spent a very enjoyable 4 hours wandering around. We agree with other reviewers that the collection is too big to see in one visit. We particularly enjoyed the room with the collection of tapestries... More

The queue was massive but moved along quickly due to efficient staff, even though we visited at a very busy time the galleries are big enough that it never felt crowded. I loved the diverse nature of the exhibitions, old masters and very modern art.

A must visit in NYC. Plan to stay for a whole day with several breaks in between for meals or shopping. I could only take in the mastesrpieces for 2-3 hours, then we went for lunch and shopping a bit, then came back for a few more hours, then dinner at the Met, then finish the day, very satisfied,

One of the most extensive collections in the world. Plan to spend several days if you can. There are restaurants where you can eat within the museums and of course gift shops. There is art for everyone's taste.

This is one of the best art museums I have had the opportunity to visit. There is something for everyone in this museum regardless of your art interest.

This wonderful museum is worth a few shorter visits if you can manage it rather than one giant visit as you will be overwhelmed by he treasures inside. Because it's pay as much as you like, you can afford to go a few times without breaking the bank.
