Recently named one of the Top 25 Museums in the United States by TripAdvisor!
The Metropolitan Museum of Art is New York City’s most-visited attraction and the monarch of American art museums. Housing an astonishing two million works of art and artifacts, the Met requires ample time to revel in its eclectic and vast exhibitions. Rare collections such as Guitar Heroes: Legendary Craftsmen from Italy to New York, The Emperor’s Private Paradise: Treasure’s from the Forbidden City, and Cezanne’s Card Players rotate to the Museum at intervals, complementing its sufficiently stunning and diverse mainstays.
The Metropolitan Museum of Art is truly among the most prestigious institutions in this city, and it would be a shame to leave NYC without paying it a visit. While it may take a lifetime to fully appreciate its vast collections, this is one excellent way to spend an afternoon. Bonus: Your ticket includes same-day admittance to The Cloisters!
