  • What a lovely place. Probably the biggest and most diverse museum I've seen. Entrance is (was?) voluntary contribution. The pieces of art in this and the seasonal exhibits are wonderful. Give the Terrace Room a try, you'll get one of the best New York skyline view (especially for the price of the access which is free). There was a huge terrace-filling artwork there when I went, don't know if it's always like that.

  • It's an amazing huge museum. Have a very nice breakfast, wear a very comfortable shoes and be there early as it will take the whole day without even finishing it all. You will have history from all ages. Painting from all ages. Many exhibits and classes to learn new things. If you live in NY a membership would be a great value but if you can't afford it they would not mind you pay $2 at the entrance or get in free as they have time for free. The museum has a few gardens and an amazing rooftop where you can enjoy the view over Central Park and fifth Ave. It's a must if you are visiting New York as it is a mind blowing and a very powerful experience.

  • Best. Museum. Ever. It's the largest museum in the US and entrance is based on a free offer. They have a huge permanent collection (it's hard to get everything done in a single day) and very interesting special exhibitions. I would recommend to get there with a plan. Plus, see if you can find the 'secret' access to the rooftop for more art, drinks, and amazing views of the park/city!

  • A museum which resides within four city blocks , it is huge in every single mean of the word. Have a nice breakfast wear something really really comfy and be prepared to spend the whole day in there. I saw things from different eras which I had no idea about and/or did not imagine to see it there. Do not miss the Egyptian and the European wings also the old Greek Roman history hall. It's amazing I do recommend this place to be visited even if your are just passing by NYC and you do only have 2 days in the city.

  • Came here on a school trip for art. Was very pleased with the art work and sculptures. HOWEVER when it was time to go to the cafeteria for lunch I got a decent size plate of salad and two scoops of pasta on the same plate. When I went to the cashier to pay, I put my plate on the scale the total of $22. I knew about the $0.98 cents per pound for salad but not about how I wasn’t supposed to put pasta on the same plate. However it wasn’t me who put the pasta on the plate it was a worker behind the counter and he never said anything else except how much. I would recommend next time bringing a bagged lunch instead of buying at the cafeteria.
