It is impossible to see it all in a few hours. Unfortunately that's all the time we had. If you are short on time get the map and choose which areas you're really interested in.

If there is any museum you must visit. The Met would be it. Everything from history to art to furniture to sculptures you'll find. The standard to follow. Get comfy shoes as you'll be here a while.

The MoMA was a very large museum with a lot of abstract art. I come to realize that I am not a fan of abstract art.
