The Met belongs on a small list of places that everyone should see in their lifetime. The building itself is stunning...at every turn there's a new architectural feature that enhances the particular gallery. I am not incredibly knowledgeable about art, I only truly understand how to appreciate Impressionism, but I found so much to love in this gigantic collection. In 3 hours we dashed through the rooms and maybe saw half of what the museum has to offer. The temporary Charles James exhibit alone was worth the visit! Will try to work this spot in to every NYC visit.
Be sure to grab a map, and don't be afraid to seek the help of the friendly, knowledgeable docents - we used both countless times! You can search their website for specific pieces and find their location, so we will definitely do that next time (we missed Jackson Pollock)!
