I know most art museum employees are rude but a few here were the worst I have experienced at any museum. Also, the museum is not half as nice as the MOA in Chicago. The architecture of the building does nothing to enhance the experience. But, really, why are they so rude? Not just NYC rude but looking down on... More

This museum has art and history. Very well spread out. Worth the trip plus it's located at Central Park and near other museums.

Not only packed with extraordinary European masters (without crowds) but also modern American art, Asian art, African art, Pre Columbian art, Egyptian artifacts, but the Met has a great rooftop bar and the best looking visitors in New York. For those of us who are truly attracted to the great New Yorkers passion for people watching, the Met is one... More

What can you say about the greatest art museum in North America? This museum has every style you can think of - it goes back to ancient civilizations, like Egypt, Greece, Rome, etc., has medieval displays, art from Asia, and of course, European art. If this is not enough, you also have the full range of modern art on display.... More

Whether you spend a day or an hour at the Met Museum, your curiosity and intellect and emotions will be satisfied. I’ve been known to skip entire areas just to view a single exhibit. Always a delight. The latest was the Jerusalem scrolls.

One can spend a life here. It is the most wonderful place to visit. Sometimes I just go to walk the hallways that I have walked since I was a child. I never can tire of looking at the antiquities from all over the globe, from every century: vases, statues, stelae, portraits, sarcophagi, pyramids, courtyards to sit, furnishings from different...

Every time I visit NYC (and I was born there and now visit frequently for business), I make a point of visiting the Met. Whether their permanent collection or their special exhibitions, the experience is right there with my other favorites: the Prado, the Louvre, and the Hermitage. If it's your first time, definitely avail yourself of either a self-guided... More
