Start to finish it was fantastic. Organized, clean, well staffed, many more exhibits than we expected. Pay what you can afford to get in; no set entrance fee.

This place is huge. We spent almost 3 hours there, and still had to skip some things due to time constraints. Make sure you see the Washington-crossing-the-Delaware painting. It's upstairs in the American wing. There weren't many people up there, and I think many people...More

This place is massive! I doubt you could do it justice in a day trip. I tried to cherry pick what I thought I could get through and my particular interests and anything else I saw along the way was a bonus. I imagine all...More

MOMA offers ever changing exhibits from the world's masters. Last week we spent the majority of our visit exploring the genius of Frank Lloyd Wright. Depicted were his hand drawings of plans from his first projects through models of his finest designs of internationally renowned...More

We visited several times. Each time we concentrate on different areas so we can spend as much time as we wish. As a member we eat at the restaurant and the Met Store is fun to shop

I've been to several world class museums and feel The Met is clearly the best of the bunch. I echo the sentiments of numerous other reviewers... " A must see for anyone visiting NYC". We went to the MOMA earlier today and in retrospect wish...More

Much too much to view on one day.I suggest before visiting you decide what interests you and check what they hold on line but bear in mind that only a portion of their collection is on view at any one time. I enjoyed the American...More

One of my big regrets after my trip is that I did not spend more time in this museum. As a Parisian, I have access to a lot of beautiful art but in my eyes the Met is one of the best museums in the...More

Probably one of the best museums in the world! Way too big to see everything in one visit (or probably 2 or 3!), and too much to assimilate. Take you time, plan your visit, and enjoy a well managed, planned and organised museum with an...More

If you've never been to the Met, then go. Go. And then go again. There is so much to see, and it is beautifully laid out. The variety is staggering, but there is lots of space so rarely did I feel like people were too...More

We were there when the Met opened and it was crowded. And it seemed as the day progressed it got busier but we never felt crowded or rushed. The Met has a nice flow.. so I guess what I am trying to say is that it will be... More

Yes there are actually bike racks inside the museum garage. Check the website. I believe they're about $15/d/bike. I'd suggest subway and walking to the museum instead. But if you must, the bike racks in the garage are much... More
