Empty Met is A Special Experience Although expensive it is an indulgence highly recommended. 90 minutes with a small group and a passionate guide without the crowds. You walk through rooms that may not necessarily be your favourites and you learn about the art there as well as the history of the museum. Your photos with nobody around are impressive. You hear the din of general admission as it approaches 10am. Find your way to your favourite room at the end of the tour and for 10 minutes you will have quiet time with your favourite piece of art or sculpture for an unforgettable experience. It can make for a long day but well worth it.
Book your tickets online rather than risk a walk in queue, especially on a peak holiday time. And do come with a full tummy! Because for art enthusiasts, it's gonna be at least 3 hours of getting lost inside. I spent 4 hours there and it was not enough. Ideally i would spend 5-6 hours there. Definitely the most epic and diverse collection for a museum I've ever visited.
If you love museums this will cover all bases. It is an amazing building with numerous rooms of interesting displays of antiquities from every period possible. I visited the Met to see my four times great-grandfather's pottery which is displayed in the American Wing, sadly the day I visited the display had been closed, very disappointing.
A huge museum!!! This museum covers ancient civilization, painting, sculpture, etc. They even put a part of dendur temple from egypt in this museum. It surely takes many days to look for all of the exhibit. We took entire day just to watch only impressionism and modern arts and feel it is not enough. The best of all, even though $25 is a suggested ticket price, you can enter just by donation. Visit early in the morning to get the most out of it. Queue is long. Everyone including City pass holder shall be on security queue. Your backpack will be checked.
Incredible museum with basically every civilization's history inside. It requires several days to get the best experience and I would suggest focusing on two or three main areas at a time. Also, the entrance fee is only a suggestion. Although they make it sound official, you can actually pay what you feel.
This is going to sound weird, but it is best to do this ALONE.....there's nothing worse than listening to someone else's critique when you are lost in something you really want to just absorb by yourself. AND DO NOT FORGET to leave time for the giftshop. They have some of the coolest gadgetry and posters/books/cards that you will ever see in one place. Buy something...you'll love it forever.
MOMA and the Metropolitan Museum of Art for the great masterpieces in art. Also, For those who haven't been to Europe, definitely The Cloisters.
Definitely the Museum of Modern Art (MOMA)/ the Metropolitan Museum of Art and the Whitney Museum particularly the Jeff Koons Exhibition which is a must to visit.
