We go to the Met almost every visit to NYC. This place is enormous in size and tremendous in the scale of art and historical gems inside. Don't let the admission price scare you off, it is actually just a suggested donation but you can pay what you can or want. If we are only going to have an hour... More

When you enter the MET, you have the sensation that you could be there visiting the museum for a week and not even finishing all art masterpieces stored there. You can't go to NYC without stopping here. (With the MET Admission you have free entrance to The Cloisters and The Breuer the same day)

Saw all our favorites but 1st time we spent time in the modern/contemporary exhibit...fabulous! And there was not a single staff/volunteer who didn't make a very special effort to help us find our way during our many wrong turns!

My first visit to the Met and I was very impressed. I only had an hour to spend in the museum so just chose to see the Egyptian wing. It was really amazing and I will definitely return again I like that you can pay what you like to enter so if you only have a short time you don't... More

we try to visit every time we come to New York. The amazing collections and exhibits rival those in other great cities of the world. On this visit we especially viewed THe Jerusalem exhibit and toured with a docent of the museum, who is a Professor of Art History at Columbia University. That was a wonderful and amazing experience. We... More

The Met was as amazing as I thought it would be. There is more to see than I even expected. We spent hours here and probably only saw 1/2 of everything. The Ancient Egyptian exhibit was spectacular and by far my favorite. You can literally spend an entire day here. It id definitely something everyone should see at least once... More

I went on several guided tours provided by the museum and I really enjoyed the way the tour guides were explaining things in the museum.

they don't tell you this, but you can offer to make a donation, in any amount you are comfortable with, instead of paying the designated entrance fee.

The Metropolitan Museum of Art would probably take a lifetime to absorb completely (perhaps longer), but whether you have an hour or a month to throw at the task, it is worth going. Get the app. Go on the tours. See as much as you can. There is truly something for everyone. I cannot wait to go back. My husband... More
