We're fortunate to live within driving distance so we go to the Met as a family once or twice a year. Full disclosure: even as a resident of New York City, I hadn't been to the museum for anything other than field trips from school until I met my wife....she minored in art history and opened my eyes to what...

The members dining room is a very pleasant, kind of fancy set up. We enjoyed our pre fixe lunches that were served with impeccable attention. On the other hand, the food was not memorable enough to rate five bullets.

We went on a cold, windy day, so were happy to get inside! We bought our city pass from here for the rest of our trip. The staff were lovely, really helpful and friendly and knowledgeable. The was a coat-bag-check which was really helpful. You could literally spend the whole day in here, there is so much to see. There... More

The Met was the other museum apart from the Museum of Natural History we visited. Since it was the first of the two, we were quite excited even though we knew it was going to be long walks. Initially the place seemed very exciting but it quickly wears off. No doubt that The Met is one of the best museums... More

The MET was great from start to finish, Many beautiful art pieces and amazing exhibits such as the Egyptian and Early American areas. Also the 2 staff members we interacted with went above and beyond to help and inform us of where to go and particular exhibits history.

We visit the Metropolitan Museum of Art at least once a month to see various exhibits and at least once a month to eat at the Member's Dining Room. Yesterday I just wandered with no destination in mind, Greek, Roman, Egyptian, Meso American art. Glorious things everywhere. Another wonder: every day the Met publishes an artwork of the day. My...
