“Excellent museum!”
Reviewed 27 August 2014

I didn't have enough time to see the whole museum, but just an hour glimpse was enough to leave me very impressed. The building is beautiful, the exhibits are striking. We came in the evening, so the crowds were minimal.
This museum requires 3-5 days to explore it fully depending on your interest.

Highlight - you can take pictures of almost everything without flash

“Don't miss the Met”
Reviewed 27 August 2014

It is simply an amazing museum, worthy of a day of your trip to NYC. It is a stunning museum, and the best display of art one could wish for.

“Most definitely a religious experience !”
Reviewed 27 August 2014

I love modern art ... but less than an inch from Dali, Picasso, Matisse, Van Gogh, Gaugin ... it was like having a religious experience ! The museum was an amazing place to visit and it literally took us hours to go round it all. If you like art you will love this place. It's not like our UK galleries where you have to stand behind ropes - you literally can have you nose a inch from the painting if you so want - being so close to the artwork really gives a totally different dimension to the art ... I cannot recommend it enough !
