A once in a life time visit and 2 floors were closed- the ones we wanted to see!! The Hockneys, Pollock,Kandinsky so check ahead at $25 dollars (100 for 4 of us) we could have spent it at MoMA or the Guggenheim.

This is without a doubt the best museum I've ever been to. This is the best museum in the United States, possibly the entire world. If in New York, go here. It is a must see, even if you're not an art enthusiast. I've asked how much time you should spend here. You could spend forever here.

Just went to see the special exhibit "China through the Looking Glass". Amazing a must-see if you are into history, fashion and their combination. Ends on September 7th.

We went for the Sargent exhibit, and spent the entire day. Too much to see in one day and we made the mistake of spending too much time with the permanent exhibits, so by the time we wandered up to the Sargent exhibit, we were exhausted. A highlight was the study of Van Gogh's Irises and Roses, which is no... More

Amazing!! The adjectives to describe thrilling, amazing, incredible, jaw dropping visual delights, educational. Too much to see in one day, which can be a great advantage if you are not a visiting traveler. If you are a visiting traveler, be sure to plan you visit to the Met, otherwise it becomes overwhelming and you may not get as much out... More

Temporary exhibitions ("Sargent" and "China through the looking glass" at the moment) and permanent collections are a must see when in the city. I'd also suggest you read "Rogue's gallery" by David Gross to know more about the unauthorized history of this institution !

This is one of the best art museums in the world, in our opinion. The range of periods and styles of art and artifacts is amazing. The French impressionists are well represented and there is an Egyptian temple in another part of the museum. We spent 6 hours there and still did not see a number of parts of this... More
