Online tickets for Metropolitan Museum

Hi there.No doubt I am a techno- challenged person, and the answer to this will in front of my eyes... I'm trying to buy tickets online for the Metropolitan Museum , but I'm getting stuck when I get to the area code.It won't accept my New Zealand one- although I have entered NZ as home country. I can't find an email address for contacting the Museum to check with them. Any ideas?

Thanks so much.

There's no reason to buy tickets for the Met online but if you want to, assuming you mean ZIP code (for address) rather than area code (which is for a telephone number) just put any 5 digit number in for a zip code and it should work. (ie 99999 or 00000 or 90210)

the Metropolitan is pay what you wish suggested donation 20$ - not sure why you need ticket before you get there - lines are usually fast moving sometimes not really long....

there really is NO advantage to having a ticket before you get there......

Yeah, but when you come here, you can just pay 25 cents US to get into the Met.

But as the Met relies heavily on money from Tourism, it is advisable to offer what they suggest....

I certainly would not pay less than $8-10.
