We did a little pre planning on the galleries we wanted to see. This helped once we got to the MET. We also had downloaded a map of the place to help us in locating galleries. We got there right as they opened and spent very little time in line. Once inside we went to a self service kiosk and... More

What's not to be excited about?! Even if you walk in and walk out again it is impressive. You can spend days here, so need to look at the gallery map and choose what to visit based on how much time you have. The hall of armor is particularly impressive. The cafe overlooking the park offers very nice sandwiches and... More

A bit of a walk from uptown and midway through the park but well worth the visit. Love the policy about paying what you want. A lovely museum with lots of fine art as well as archaeological finds. We went twice during our time in New York.

Oh, how I love the Met! There's something there for everyone to appreciate. No matter how many times I visit I always walk away like it's my first visit. So much to enjoy and appreciate. Yesterday my friend and I explored the ancient Greek and Roman collections which are outstanding. Be sure and see the vase section. After lunch we... More

Visited the Met for a few hours on our trip to NY last week. Always a treat; especially on a cold, raw day like ours was. Loved the Impressionists gallery and the American Wing. A nice respite from the hustle and bustle of midtown.

A great place to visit anytime. During the Christmas season you must see the tree in the medieval gallery.

The day I went middle of the week early December there was hardly anyone there. It was wonderful. I could walk around without running into people. The exhibits are well laid out and the architectural features of the galleries often matches the time frame of the exhibits which provides a wonderful atmosphere.

I have visited several times to the Metropolitan Museum of Art (The MET). The MET is located in New York City. It is the largest art museum in the United States, and is among the most visited art museums in the world. I visited here on a cold rainy Christmas Eve with my son. The Great Hall is quite impressive.... More

This is my favorite museum in New York City! The collection of artworks from all eras is exceptional. We've been there before, but spent more time this time. We also ate lunch in the dining room, and the food was great! Served cafeteria style and a bit spendy, but it was healthy and good. My favorite of all the artwork... More
