"Art on Central Park" Metropolitan Museum of Art Tip by travelfrosch
Metropolitan Museum of Art, New York City: 193 reviews and 377 photos
If you're a fan of art and museums, the Met Museum has to be very high on your list. Just off of Central Park, the sprawling building houses works of art of all sorts from all around the world. Like the Louvre, it isn't possible to see the entire place in one day. Take a look at the free guide booklet and decide which works you would like to see. For this visit, we decided to concentrate on Roman statues, African art, and Dutch paintings.
Admission is technically free, but you probably should go up to a ticket counter and make the "suggested donation" ($20 for adults, $15 for children and Seniors, also includes admission to The Cloisters) for your visit. Various types of museum memberships are also available online -- check the website for details.
Opening hours are 9:30 AM to 5:30 PM, open until 9:00 PM Fridays and Saturdays, Closed Mondays (but open on holidays).
Address: 1000 Fifth Avenue at 82nd Street
Directions: Closest subways are 77th Street (6 train) and 86th Street (4,5,6). Walk three blocks west to Central Park.
