We wish we are NYC resident so we can visit this museum every week. Huge collections and unbelievable Egyptian temple. Lot of Antiques are over 3000 years ago. Super impressive for the varieties and type of antiques.

A huge museum with a really impressive collection and a wide variety of things to see. Do not miss the special exhibition on Irving Penn, clearly one of the best photographers ... it is spectacular!

This is a great attraction if you're into museums, especially the statues and paintings type vs science museums. You pay what you want to get it. The place is very busy, and a LONG walk from Times Square...to take the bus or pedicab or something if you don't like a walk. As for the place itself, the layout is absolutely... More

The sort of place you casually walk around a corner and gasp: untold wealth of classic to contemporary art work, the biggest names, the most noteworthy pieces and something for almost everyone. Visit 100 times and you still find undiscovered galleries. Special exhibits range from good to beyond belief. Pay what you wish admission makes it one of the biggest... More

If you are a person who Loves and appreciates art, you must go here. Be sure to get a map to navigate the many exhibits around the museum. The Museum is HUGE. You will not get to see everything in one day. Pick the exhibits that interest you the most. If you are interested in Fashion, you will definitely want... More

We had a very wet first day in New York which we spent here and loved it. Such a varied collection of objects and artwork....from Tiffany windows to furniture, glasswear, ancient artifacts, it really is a treasure-trove. The cafe was extortionately expensive would be my only negative comment. Great shop here too, though pricey, as museum shops tend to be.

Very nice museum but many art pieces are not real. they are only copies. but still very nice to visit during rainy day. Please don't pay the $25 they ask in front. It is by donation. With $1 you can get in.

Although I personally prefer MOMA to the Met , the Met has much more breadth in what it offers.Even the architecture of the building , inside and out , is a collection of exhibits on its own.The selection of sculptures is very discriminately thought out ,with some very unique pieces like the 'Siren'. Paintings are well represented from the Middle... More
