Metropolitan Museum of Art, New York City: 194 reviews and 382 photos

  The American Wing
by londonlover

For any art buff, or even casual art admirer, this is a must-see in New York. This is because, quite simply, it's one of the top five museums in the world for classic works of art. Highlights include the American section, the Van Gogh and Monet collections, and the musical instrument section.

I spent about six hours here, but you could easily devote a whole day to the museum if you have the endurance for it!
