  • I loved this museum! It was a donation based fee for entry which was wonderful because we could only visit for a short time so it made the trip very worth it. There was just about every different kind of art you can imagine from all different parts of the world, from many different time periods. It was absolutely beautiful and I would highly recommend to anyone that even has some interest in art. The Egyptian exhibit was definitely my favorite.

  • Best museum ever. It is donation based (Please donate!) and it is one you will need 2-3 days to really explore all of it. Good for New Yorker's and good for visitors. Check for exhibitions, you might get a chance of a lifetime. Can get full with camera's flashes so choose the hours carefully.

  • This is the BEST museum in all of North America hands down. Their collection is massive, on every scale. Their modern collection, impressionist, classical, sculpture it's all astoundingly large. The museum is also built kind of like an old Greek or roman building from the first century so it's just gorgeous to walk through. They also hold many activities, talks and workshops every month and engage with the community which is excellent for art lovers. My favorite part is that it's by donation, so it really encourages me to just keep coming back and see all the works, and to take my time and really appreciate the variety. As an artist a frequently come tot he met to do live drawing, which the museum accepts, so it's also a wonderful teacher for budding artists of all levels. Please note that colored art materials are not accepted: paint, ink or pastels. But charcoal, lead, and pencils of all kinds are accepted so keep that in mind! I met a wonderful artist there last Sunday who is so talented, Dwight, of you see him tell him Irina says hello!

  • The best museum ever! The art and history this building shows everyday for practicality no fee is amazing. I love that there's a safe place to put your coat and bags so your not stuck holding them the entire time, and that the building is clean and not left dirty despite the massive amount of people that visit.

  • This museum is a wonderful monument to, well, so many things. The building is beautiful, the location (on Fifth Avenue and right on Central Park) is amazing, and the collections inside are spectacular. The restaurants and shops are outstanding as well. What more can be said? This is THE MET, and it's excellent.
