We planned a family vacation to NYC, just to see one of the exhibits: Temple of Dendur. My son is studying Ancient Egypt, and we've been promising him to see the temple. When we got there, we went straight to the temple and we're the...More

Even with a whole day its impossible to see all of this museum and take it all in. I've been to many museums but this one is my favorite.

It was super cool to finally visit this museum. It is huge! Really cool to check out al the exhibits. If you want to do it in one day you can but it is a full day.

Nice museum to visit. Was very busy. The dinosaurs were the most impressive. Tip: Do not eat in the restaurant in the basement. Have never eaten so badly.

The museum is massive so if you want to cover the whole thing , you at least need a day but if you don’t have that much time you have to choose what you’re interested in and just go over them

One of the few truly great art collections of the world, housed in a beautiful museum. From a complete temple from ancient Egypt to absolutely modern art, the collection spans all ages, periods and civilizations. Not to be missed. One or two days totally insufficient...More

The museum was mesmorising from start to finish. If you're into your history you can see Roman and Greek sculptures and mediaeval armour. If you're into your paintings you have your european classics, modern and contemporary art e.g. we saw Van Gogh, Monet, Picasso paintings....More

If you want to use the ticket to see other museums that belong to the Met then check the fine print before purchasing on line. I bought my ticket at the museum (the lines move really fast) and took advantage of the 3 for 1... More
