My wife teaches Ancient History so visiting the MET with her like taking my own tour guide (But we did do a guided tour to take in the highlights). Always enjoyable and so much to see, so much so that we spend two days there. She was doing preparations for a course she is teaching later this year - A... More

The Met is an enormous museum. I do not recommend going when you are tired and starting to get sick, BUT as long as you aren't feeling crappy when you go it is well worth the visit. My spouse was so excited to see their baseball card exhibit and their collection of decorative arts, fashion, Egyptian artifacts are beyond impressive.... More

Some galleries were closed but we still enjoyed most of them. I would've appreciated more if they told me the Egyptian Temple of Dendur was closed since it's the best part of the museum!

The Music tour was excellent. We especially enjoyed the Costume Tour. We had a nice lunch in the cafe.

If you love art this is a great museum. Their selection and pieces are amazing. Can spend days in the Met. We were able to get through each of the different sections in a day but you need plenty of time.

The trouble with enormous, wide ranging museums like The Met is that for non-residents the temptation is to do the whole place on one day, and the result is a blur. The Met deserves as many visits as you can give it: pick the bits you want to see on any occasion and enjoy that. I'd recommend 2 sections at... More

After being to British Museum in London and the Smithsonian museums in Washington DC and several other world class museum, the MET is still a WOW museum. It is both bigger and the exhibitions even better presented. Went here twice within few days and will still come back.
