The Met has a huge number of exhibits to see. There is something for everyone here: from the ancient Egyptian Temple of Dendur to modern & contemporary art from the current decade and probably every year in between. I went to several of the current exhibitions - Cubism, Madame Cézanne, Thomas Hart Benton's America Today Mural Rediscovered, Kimono A Modern... More

We viewed the Madame Cezanne and El Greco special exhibits today, and they were wonderful. But what blew me away was the room full of Rembrandts and the wall of massive paintings by Rubens. The staff were uniformly gracious and helpful.

I have been to The Metropolitan several times , usually to see a special exhibit and then wonder around and see a little more. My advice is to concentrate on an area or two and not try to see it all. It is better to come back again and again and enjoy your visit then to attempt everything from European... More

There is so much to see and do in this museum. Wonderful exhibits of all types. A very well run museum. All you need is enough time and stamina to enjoy it.

The Met has a good sampling of everything - Islamic Art, Asian, American, Indian, Egyptian. You name it! Get a taste and return many times. It is a real bargain including very nice book shop and gift shops. The donation of $25 is ONLY a suggestion. Pay what you can afford.

When we visited The Met our goal was not to hit avery gallery and every exhibit (it is far too big to do this in a half day!) but rather see the late 19th and early 20th century European art together with the antiquities. What we weren't ready for was the size of the Impressionist collection. It was simply massive... More

Loved the audio tour, and couldn't believe how lucky we were to get there on free Friday! Fridays are free from 4pm - 8pm. We got to see the Matisse expo, which was very well curated. Loved the 5th floor!
