Came in to visit the special Christmas display. The Baroque angels on the trees were augmented with scenes of beautiful craftsmanship surrounding the base. Beautifully curated. Wonderful.

If you have never been to the Met, it is way too big to see even half of it in one visit. It is worth a bit of planning before you go. I highly recommend the free museum tours for an overview. Until Oct 2020,...More

You won't feel so bad about getting one of your days in NYC washed out after spending a good chunk of it at the Met. Arguably the best collection of Art in the world. Don't try to do it all, your head will swim. Pick...More
