What a fantastic place to view great art. Van Gogh, Cezanne, Renoir, Degas, Modigliani. We only went to one tiny corner of the museum, and I was like a kid in a sweet shop. I was advised before visiting New York what a special place this is. And it was great advice. And a great location by Central Park.

You need days if you want to see it all. We chose to se the american and the European art sections. Their collection of impressionists are amazing. I also found very many interesting pieces in the contemporary section. The periodic rooms on show in both the american and european sections are also very interesting. I especially loved the reconstructed Frank... More

The Metropolitan Museum on Fifth Avenue in New York City is so large that it deserves multiple reviews, one for each of its many collections. On this visit we concentrated on the classical Greek and Roman artifacts. We spent several hours viewing the sculpture, frescos, jewelry, etc. and only saw a fraction of it. Our favorite was a remarkably preserved... More

A national treasure. An almost endless stream of some of the world's most significant art. It cannot be easily covered in one visit, so plan your visit and concentrate on art categories that you would most like to see without rushing through.

This museum is donation based admission, so while they suggest a fee you can pay what you can afford. The special exhibits are amazing, and the permanent collection is EXTENSIVE. You could easily spend the better part of a day here.

Went here twice already. The first time I went, I didn't have enough time to explore everything. It's a big museum. It used to cost 20 dollars; now you pay whatever amount you want, thankfully. Having really good exhibitions is already given. It's expected. So better spend more than 3 hours. It's always packed!!!

The MET is a good museum with lots of exhibits. The problem with having loads of exhibits is that each one has a fairly limited collection. All in all a very good museum with lots of variety.
