Absolutely stunning. Get the audio your for $7. This would take you days to do. We enjoyed the Egyptian exhibit and the Roman statutes. The paintings are wonderful. Listen to the audio for the paintings. The audio gives you so much valuable information about the paintings and artifacts.

Growing up in Oklahoma, I have heard of the Met my entire life. It reached a mythical level of excellence in my mind. I was nervous to visit it, for fear it would not meet my expectations. The collection is huge, well documented and beautiful. The complex is large enough that rarely do you feel crowded once you move away... More

There is a suggested entry fee but my daughter and I paid much less and the ticket guy was very happy and didn't make it embarrassing! The... More

.. so in 150 years, the largest museum in the world has been collected both as a collection number as well as space and as the economic value of the collection. It is the second time I go and I spend over half a day: this time I dedicated my visit to the "European sector Paintings 1250-1800" rooms ranging from... More

Wonderful example that the US is so related to the European Culture. This is the foundation of his country, which has no or almost none cuture of its own. There is a lot of what rich Americans coud acquire and this sums up to an incredible and powerful collection which money could buy. Amazing!
