This was a beautiful and must see Museum. New York City is filled with Museums that are very affordable since a lot them allow you to pay the price that you want to pay upon entering.

So much to see and you really need a few hours to see all of it. Great shop too. I went on a Saturday and it was pretty crowded so maybe go midweek. Well worth it.

This is just a classic. It's totally open so you are free to walk around at whatever pace you want. You will see some amazing things here. It absolutely worth the time.

Loved the exhibits we saw. Busy place but worthwhile. We had lunch......I do not recommend. Two plates of pasta, which was cold, and two small bottles of wine......51 dollars! The Money paintings were a delight and the Faberge was exquisite.

You will not see everything in one visit, so don't even try. We enjoyed the highlights tour, which was a good overview and gave just enough details.

The Met is part of the heart of NY and the exhibitions are great for adults, young adults and kids. Is shows art for all ages.
