Visited with a friend from Europe who is an art collector. The Terra-cotta Warrior exhibit is not to be missed. The archeological finds from China are beautifully displayed. There are several warriors and horses. The collection includes small warriors as well as other terra-cotta items including an array of animals that are truly lifelike. There's also a beautiful money tree... More

Our tour guide suggested carving out at least 3 hours for this stop, and he was right. He also said to skip the lines leading up to the main entrance... there are entrance doors on the street level that are accessible to anyone, yet everyone still stands in the long lines for no reason at all. 😊

Our family throughly enjoyed the museum. There is art from many cultures and time periods, including painting, sculpture, costumes, etc. The layout is a bit confusing, but the docents were happy to help.

The Metropolitan Museum of art is simply amazing! The building itself is massive and monumental. Inside it is filled with millions of historical artifacts. You could spend multiple days reviewing everything at the museum and still not have completed it all. This museum is a must-see and I cannot wait to go again!

We were told to go into the Egypt section by a friend and it was amazing! They had hundreds of artifacts from Egypt that were so detailed and beautiful. The whole museum is really beautiful. $25 per person is only a suggestion. You can actually pay whatever you would like as a donation just FYI.

If you can, do the "Empty Met" tour. This starts at 8.30 and you have a guided tour for an hour and a half. It is well worth it, as you don't have lots of people blocking your views. It is fast paced, but I managed and I have a bad back. Afterwards you can go back and visit areas... More

A great range of artifacts are to be found at the museum. It is divided into different areas from great egyptian relics to a beautiful atrium with tiffany glass and amazing art. Easy to spend hours here.
