Young children will love this place (say ages 4 to 12)!!! Quickly take them into the little rooms to the right (Egyptian??) off the lobby. Then take them to the huge room overlooking the park where a rebuilt ancient (tall) stone structure has been reassembled. They can walk in and around it. Some children may also enjoy the decorative rooms... More

As New York was digging out from the Blizzard of 2016, we found a great place to duck out of the frenzy. It'd take days to properly wander the galleries with fine art from Monet, Rembrandt and on and on and on. Something I really appreciated that often goes overlooked in museums (and many other attractions for that matter) was... More

I would say more of a museum than art gallery. Found it difficult to navigate despite having a map. All in all though enjoyed adding a little culture to our NYC trip.

Amazing place, so full of history. Entry is donation. They suggest $20 or $25 (can't remember) but I've gone in there with $2 :)

We had so little time and yet we saw so much. We were so impressed by the variety. However, we want to come back for more.

I was there the day after the blizzard and half of the exhibitions were closed and they closed the whole place at 14:00. This was not mentioned when i got my ticket. The recommended admission fee for an adult is 25 bucks, but one can choose to pay less or nothing at all if I understood it correctly. I wish... More

We visited the day after we saw the Museum of Natural History and everything at the Met was very similar to what we had experienced the day before. We were disappointed that it was so expensive to see and was fairly one dimensional.

Haven't been in a few years. It remains one of the world's great museums. We are warming up the kids for a major European trip with lots of museum visits. It was a treat to see thee paintings by an artist who was an ancestor of friend who accompanied us.
