I had a few hours to kill and I have tried to like museums in NY. This one was a winner. I opted for the audio tour and it was amazing. The Museum director has a special tour for both levels and it takes you through a great journey. This museum can take all day, but a specific guided tour... More

An unbelievable place. Only had about and hour and a half here unfortunately. Will definitely go back some day and spend at least a day. Phenomenal array of amazing art on display, I imagine you could wander around for days on end. Wonderful experience and a must-see in New York

There is just so much to see that you could spend multiple days poking around. We had a great afternoon enjoying the many different pieces of art and artifacts.

We visit the MET every year and have our favorite areas to go to. Such as the Impressionists and the American Wing. This Museum is amazing. You can pay full price suggested or pay a donation. The special shows are hit or miss. Not too crazy about the shows that are there now in February. That is why we end... More

The circus exhibit featuring Seurat was fun - lots of other art covering the same topic at the same time to add perspective. The Math as Art exhibit was amusing to this math teacher - I never thought of equations as art! The Impressionist collection was amazing. We only saw a tiny fraction of the museum, but it was great... More

This several kms walk follows an old disused railway line that is part of revamping an old area of New York. It provides views of the Hudson River and many parts of the city. You can spend one to three hours walking the route with lots of photo opportunities along the way. A great way to get some exercise while... More

Unbelievable amount of art collected and donated here to see. We didn't even cover 1/3 and spent over 4 hours there. Need to come back and revisit. Had afternoon tea there and the gift shop is very extensive site with tasteful gifts

lots to see. I would recommend at least 5 hours here or all day to go through it all. entrance by donation. they recommend $25 entry but you really can donate whatever you want. Museum is a quiet one and I would not recommend it for children that run around or act up.
