All the world's cultures are on display, from Egyptian mummies to ancient Greek statuary to Islamic carvings to Renaissance paintings to Native American masks to 20th C decorative arts.

It's impossible to see all the above mentioned art works in a day. Better way to see the Met on your own is to pick up a map at the round desk in the entry hall & choose to concentrate on what you like, whether it's 17th C paintings, American furniture, or the art of the South Pacific.

Address: 1000 Fifth Avenue at 82nd Street
Directions: Take 4, 5, or 6 train to 86th Street and walk three blocks west to Fifth Avenue
