The sort of place you casually walk around a corner and gasp: untold wealth of classic to contemporary art work, the biggest names, the most noteworthy pieces and something for almost everyone. Visit 100 times and you still find undiscovered galleries. Special exhibits range from good to beyond belief. Pay what you wish admission makes it one of the biggest... More

If you are a person who Loves and appreciates art, you must go here. Be sure to get a map to navigate the many exhibits around the museum. The Museum is HUGE. You will not get to see everything in one day. Pick the exhibits that interest you the most. If you are interested in Fashion, you will definitely want... More

We had a very wet first day in New York which we spent here and loved it. Such a varied collection of objects and artwork....from Tiffany windows to furniture, glasswear, ancient artifacts, it really is a treasure-trove. The cafe was extortionately expensive would be my only negative comment. Great shop here too, though pricey, as museum shops tend to be.

Very nice museum but many art pieces are not real. they are only copies. but still very nice to visit during rainy day. Please don't pay the $25 they ask in front. It is by donation. With $1 you can get in.

Although I personally prefer MOMA to the Met , the Met has much more breadth in what it offers.Even the architecture of the building , inside and out , is a collection of exhibits on its own.The selection of sculptures is very discriminately thought out ,with some very unique pieces like the 'Siren'. Paintings are well represented from the Middle... More

Pla your visit here, research what paintings/exhibits or artists you wish to see, if not you will miss out as this place is enormous one could not see everything in this installation in two whole days. Ther's free maps availbale inside and plenty of staff willing to assist.

Bring your most comfortable pair of walking shoes, check your coat or schoolbags and plan at least 2 days at the Met because there will be lots of fabulous art to see! For lunch, we discovered that there is a food truck on 62 and madison called Tony Dragon's Grille that serves amazing Greek food. It beats anything you will... More

Not to be missed, you need days here to really see it, it can be overwhelming but best to take it piecemeal and hope you get back there. The collection is comprehensive, especially their Modern and Impressionist groups. A wonderful collection of antiquities.

Classic museum, similar to the Louvre in France. Great but not extraordinary. If you don't have time for both museums, I would definitely recommend visiting the MOMA and not the MET.
