"Metropolitan Museum of Art" Metropolitan Museum of Art Tip by Birsen
Metropolitan Museum of Art, New York City: 194 reviews and 382 photos
The finest collection of American art in the world, a selection of ancient Egyptian art that rivals any outside of Cairo, and an amazing array of European painting and sculpture--these are just some of the reasons why the Met remains the cultural touchstone of the arts-dense city. In most every artistic field, these vast collections are good-to-outstanding--and often superlative.
In addition to the American and Egyptian art, the Greco-Roman galleries and European paintings are some of the finest in the world, and feature important works from just about every country, period and style. Given the breadth of its offerings, the Met is best taken in small doses. Fortunately, the museum has a pay-what-you-wish policy that allows entry for as little as a quarter.
