Our only issue here was that we didn not plan enough time of the day. From the moment you pay to enter, to the time you find your way out, you are learning. The theme are plenty and well arranged. The exhibits are very well done. The staff are around for questions. The building

So glad that we visited the Met early in the morning before its opening when no tourists around except a morning exercise group. Therefore, we were able to see the art collections up-close and took nice detailed photos without disturbance. Also think the morning exercise tour

I try to tour the Met any time I’m in NYC. It is a wealth of knowledge, a smorgasbord of visual stimulation. Always up to date exhibits and wonderful coffee shops for breaks. Also wonderful restaurants and cafeterias. America’s #1 Museum for many , many years. Always a must see.

This place is remarkable. We took the highlights one hour tour. You really need more than a couple hours to enjoy the exhibits. Be sure to visit the rooftop exhibit, the green balloon dog and the red foil heart are worth seeing as well as the view of the city.
