Amazing! You really need a couple of days to see most of it!! Eat before you come though...cafeteria wayyyy overpriced! Have a drink on 5th floor rooftop bar before you leave...beautiful views!

Huge museum - would need a few days to see it all so plan before you go. Best part? Two rooms FULL of Vincent Van Gogh's included a self portrait and the Irises (on white background). Bliss.

I was there when it opened and they kicked me out as it was closing (starting at 5:10 in Egypt). The whole day there, but I still didn't see all of the Met!

You could spend weeks inside this museum. If you enjoy the classics & world history, this is a must.

We ended up going on a day where you could give a donation of your choosing for admission, which was a great surprise! The museum is endless, with floors upon floors, rooms upon rooms of interesting materials.

Yes I believe they do. I saw several ppl in wheelchairs the day we went and they looked for hire. You can also email the Met to enquire prior.

I don't know. You can pay when you get there. It is donations. You can pay a penny if you want. The food is overpriced.
