“A short review”
Reviewed 1 September 2014

An amazing place to visit. Spent several hours there and only saw a fraction of what there is to see. And never mind the treasures - the building, layout and location are stunning in their own right.

Simply a must see in NYC!

“No trip to NYC complete without visiting the met.”
Reviewed 1 September 2014 via mobile

Simply the best museum in the city. A treasure trove of artifacts and paintings .
If you are on tight circumstances , you can still visit anytime and pay as you wish for the entrance.
No other museum in this city makes itself accessible to all.

“Amazing!”
Reviewed 1 September 2014 via mobile

One of the biggest museums in the world. We took a tour through some of the highlights. It's impossible to see everything because it's so vast and contains so many pieces. Worth the price and your time!

“Not enough words!”
Reviewed 1 September 2014

I simply cannot find the words to describe this amazing museum. Advice: wear very comfortable shoes and clothing, get online to get an idea of the layout, TAKE YOUR TIME, and sit wherever you can to absorb the galleries and magnificent works of art. My favorite areas are the halls of armor (especially on the horses), the medieval church tapestries, the Temple of Dendur...oh forget it, I love it all!
