or more to experience this behemoth of culture. We focused on the Charles James exhibition, as that is our thing, plus time is at a premium. We were not disappointed, beautifully presented and curated. The interactive screens were fascinating showing the construction of the various gowns. Loved it.

I knew of The Met for many years via the internet and it was top of my Bucket List for a long time. I visited two years ago and again a few weeks ago. It is simply breath-taking! I was particularly interested in viewing the new Americana Wing and the Japanese Screens in the Asian Collection and these provided food for the soul and more. The building has now become an old friend to me...or maybe a new lover!? Not to be missed under any circumstances.

The entrance fee is recommended at $25.00, yet if on a budget a larger family can pay an amount which is more in their budget. But just to be clear, this experience is worth the cost of admission.There is something for everyone. From mesmerizing original art to lost kingdoms. Towering Egyptian temples to exquisite fine jewelry of nobility. From couture to African canoes, the MMA has it all. Prepare to spend at least 3 hours here. We would have returned if time allowed.There were quite a few people there on a weekday, but we didn't wait in lines or feel crowded viewing exhibits.Street food vendors are usually outside so grab a hotdog and have a seat on the stairs for a quick rest before your next adventure.

It felt like I walked off the streets of NYC and into a museum in Europe! I was blown over with the collection and the flow of this museum. It was pretty easy for my family to pick out certain areas that we wanted to tour, I sought out the Impressionists, one son wanted to see Renaissance and the other Arms and Armor area. If you have time, do it!

Something for everyone can be found at MOMA. There were hands-on displays, where guests could manipulate objects; there were 16 mm projectors showing black-and-white footage; one room had a full wall displaying foul language in German script. My favorites were world-renowned works by Van Gogh, Picasso, Gaugin, .....
