"The Met" is truly one of the world's greatest museums.
However, unlike the major museums in London and Paris, admission to the Met is not free. Currently, "recommended" admission to the Met is $25 for adults, children a bit less. This is technically a "recommended" admission donation, and sure, you can technically offer less, but be prepared to get a bit of pressure and a short lecture if you decide to do so.
That said, this is one of best museums in the world, including everything from old masters and a reconstructed ancient temple to a fabulous gallery of rare musical instruments. If you'd truly like to see the entire museum at a leisurely pace, plan to be here most of a day. The setting in Central Park is gorgeous, and you may re-enter after you've paid your admission. There are plenty of vendors outside the museum doors to supply your Central Park picnic.
Concerning admission: Yes, it's a bit high. But the gold standard always is.
