"Metropolitan Museum of Art at NY" Metropolitan Museum of Art Tip by darthmilmo

Metropolitan Museum of Art, New York City: 193 reviews and 377 photos


IMHO, this is the best museum in NYC. It has all that you may be looking for and more. For those archeological and history buffs like me this museum will fill your appetite for a while. They have all sorts of exhibitions covering most of the areas of the globe: Egyptian, Greek, Roman, Middle-eastern, Asian, African, American, Pacific islands, etc. My favorite exhibition has to be the South and South East Asian ones. The exhibits served as a catalyst that fired up my desire to return to Asia and explore other areas that I haven't been to. Perhaps it will serve you in a similar way :). Reserve at least 2 days if you want to see it all in detail. I spent a whole day there and still missed the European and American art and decor exhibits! I know, an excuse to go there again :P.
