The Met offers a free tour every hour or so (check with the information desk). It gave us a lot of context around some of the pieces and helps you get an overview of the museum in a little over an hour.

This is a world class museum with something to offer for almost everyone. Wear your most comfortable shoes. If you have only a short time, review the website and floor plan in advance so you can get where you most want to be quickly.

It is not a trip to New York City without a visit to the Metropolitan Museum of Art. There is something for everyone - suits of armor, dresses of First Ladies, & of course, incredible art for days!

There is no need for me to describe MoMA... All that I can say is that when we visited it had an exhibition of the works of Francis Picabia. Not being an art person I was not familiar with the artist but I was amazed by his works. I don't know how long the exhibition will be but it is... More

The museum wasn't really what I expected but I didn't hate it. I walked a lot and I believe I didn't even see 1/3 of the place haha. My entry was included in my City Pass, which also had same-day admission to The Met Cloisters and The Met Breuer, but honestly the best you could do is visit The Met... More

The museum is a must for art and architecture lovers. It offers a great insight into artwork of medieval ages. The architecture also deserves a lot of praise.

Do not try to see everything. Grab a map and do ask one of the many information folks for tips on what to see. Entrance fee is donation based so you pay what you can.

I rarely give. 5 stars. but this place is a must-see attraction in your in New York. The museum contains alot of history which will tingle your imagination. Even though the place is crowded you will still be able to appreciate the art display because of the large square area of the museum. I would definitely love to come back... More

Headed here to visit the Monet paintings in the summer. After drinks at the rooftop bar we sat in front of Monet's lilies for a long time. We had the room to ourselves for a long time which made the experience even more magical! Tip: go to the rooftop bar for incredible views of the park

We did a little pre planning on the galleries we wanted to see. This helped once we got to the MET. We also had downloaded a map of the place to help us in locating galleries. We got there right as they opened and spent very little time in line. Once inside we went to a self service kiosk and... More
