The museum has everything and the staff are very helpful assisting you to navigate the different areas. You can't see everything in one day. We chose the Egyptian Temple area, Impressionism and the American wing. Without rushing we spent 3 hours at the museum.

I have been going to the Met since I was a teenager and have always loved it. Whether you want to look at Impressionist paintings or the costume exhibit, there is something to hold everyone's attention here. It is so large and full of so many wonderful exhibits, that one day is just not enough to see it all.

We visited from Noon to 4pm on a Sunday. We were only able to get through maybe 1/3 of the museum at most. It's a terrific place, well worth the visit and you'll likely need to visit more than once. Plenty to see.

This museum is truly incredible! We spent 5 hours here and they flew by! I think we covered about a third of the entire museum and we cannot wait to go back another day to explore!

My wife teaches Ancient History so visiting the MET with her like taking my own tour guide (But we did do a guided tour to take in the highlights). Always enjoyable and so much to see, so much so that we spend two days there. She was doing preparations for a course she is teaching later this year - A... More

The Met is an enormous museum. I do not recommend going when you are tired and starting to get sick, BUT as long as you aren't feeling crappy when you go it is well worth the visit. My spouse was so excited to see their baseball card exhibit and their collection of decorative arts, fashion, Egyptian artifacts are beyond impressive.... More

Some galleries were closed but we still enjoyed most of them. I would've appreciated more if they told me the Egyptian Temple of Dendur was closed since it's the best part of the museum!

The Music tour was excellent. We especially enjoyed the Costume Tour. We had a nice lunch in the cafe.

If you love art this is a great museum. Their selection and pieces are amazing. Can spend days in the Met. We were able to get through each of the different sections in a day but you need plenty of time.
