Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

I went with 2 other gal pals to see the Tudors: Art and Majesty in Renaissance England (there until early January). It was FANTASTIC! I LOVE the Tudor English period and there were so many awesome things to see: paintings, suits of armor, rugs and wall hangings (tapestries) just amazing items that have been beautifully preserved for so many years! I LOVED this show, we also saw some post-impressionist art and had lunch at Serafina's (walking distance). We parked in the Met's parking lot which was safe and awesome!

This is one of the most extensive, interesting and enlightening collections in the world! I recommend signing up for one of their "highlights" guided tours to begin.

I go every time I visit NYC, it is wonderful, exciting and there is always a new exhibition to see. My favorite is the Egyptian Collection.

Excellent museum and very well laid out. Peaceful and relaxing vibe. My only critical review would be that there was too much to see!

Some museums are more equal than others. The Met is one of them. Worth a visit every time we are in town.

This is one of the richest museums in the world, and I say that out of experience. It is HUGE and has an enormous variety of exhibits. This means: either you assign several days to adequately enjoy it OR you make a plan for what you really like to see and what you can skip.
I shall not write about the collections since many previous comments addressed this adequately. However, the ancient EGYPTIAN section is amazing. It contains the largest collection outside Egypt. It even contains a small temple!!
You also want to check on ticket prices since there are discounted tickets for students, seniors and multi-visits.
There are a couple of possibilities for coffee, refreshments, snacks and even dinning inside. You may want to consider a little rest in the fresh air and enjoy the view on the terrace at the 5th floor.
If you are in NY and haven't been to the MET (as they call it there) consider that you haven't been to NY.

The best museum on the face of the earth. There is no other like it. You have a little of everything from every genre, every time frame. One trip does not do it justice, neither does several. You can always come back and find something new or see something you missed before. There is always an exhibit going on as well.
