one of mt favoritw museums in NYC! Alwayd has new and fun exihibets
Things I love about the Met. The steps at the front are a great place to sit and eat lunch from one of the food carts. It is a pay what you can place. The suggested fee is $20 but if you don't have that then pay what you can. It's huge so you could spend the day getting lost here, perfect if it is raining or cold outside. In the summer you need to head up to the rooftop bar as it has great views over central park.
One of my favorite museums. One day isnt enough to go through the whole museum. Make sure to visit special exhibits
The Metropolitan Museum of Art is one of the most famous sights to see in NYC, whether you are a tourist or you live in NYC the met is a must! In addition to its amazing long-standing exhibits the met always has New and amazing exhibitions and last summer they added a rooftop bar for people to enjoy in the warm months
Amazing place, you could spend days exploring. Must make sure to check out the terrace view.
The Met is so large and there is so much amazing stuff to see it can be overwhelming. It’s a good strategy to pick a few areas to focus on for the day. Also if you go on a weekend or holiday brace yourself for crowds. When we arrived on at 12am there was a one hour line outside of the museum to purchase tickets as well as long queues for everything else (special exhibit, restaurant, bathroom)This isn’t the greatest museum for young kids. Without historical background it’s hard for them to appreciate the art and artifacts. They liked the Egyptian and Medieval art but European paintings especially more abstract artists were NOT appreciated.
Very big and it will take several trips to enjoy all of the exhibitions. Admission is suggested and you can contribute what you like for entry.
