    Great costume institute this season! The ancient Egyptian exhibit was not the best.

    World class institution, amazing collection of applied and decorative art. The American wing with its interiors is a must. Many free tours available every day with passionate and prepared volunteers.

    Pay what you like even a penny. Open late on Saturday night. Perfect for winter Moitze Shabbat. Some Jewish historical artifacts

    Dedicate more than a few hours to explore the numerous exhibits. Utilize the cafe and cafeteria or a more fancy option - the restaurant for a bite and beverage; for a rest of the feet.

  • Gergely N.

    An endless maze of artifacts to see. Make sure to pay a visit for at least an hour when in New York. But actually you should spend at least a day in it. :) You can withdraw cash in the basement floor.

    Name your price on admission. Grab a map. Go check out some Monet and Van Gough paintings. Check out Egyptian and American Wing.

    Purchase your ticket in advance to avoid crowds. You must go through security to enter. Allow at least one full day visit.

    Go to the roof to see the Huyghe exhibit. Brilliant! Skip the cafeteria and go for the many food carts outside.

    Admissions are pay what you wish donations, the roof is open during warm weather, annual costume exhibitions and the greatest collection of artwork on the planet!

    Most of the works mentioned in "The Mixed-Up Files of Mrs. Basil E. Frankweiler" are there in their immortal glory.

  • Ance K.

    You could spend days here, it's wonderful. What the staff doesnt tell you is that the admissions (25$) are donations and voluntary so you can also go there if you don't have the money to spend!!!

    Maybe its because of Game of Thrones, but I'm totally into the armor. See what Henry VIII wore.

  • Marina B.

    It's huge, a bit confusing and has more works of art that a person could see in one day. Don't miss the Islamic art section, it's gorgeous!

    Marina Burity · September 13
  • Diego F.

    All expositions are awesome. At least go two days.

    Bank of America cardholders get free access every first weekend of the month, but then again, admission fees are suggested, not required. The Egyptian, European, and Medieval exhibits are cool.

    The best museum I've ever been to! I walked around for 4 hours and probably only saw half the museum!

    This maybe my personal favorite museum- for as long as I can remember. In fact I used to ask to come here so often dad thought it most practical to become a member. A must visit as often as possible

    Make sure to get there early! It helps when you want to go through the entire museum.

    One of the great museums of the world. During the summer be sure to get to the rooftop for the spectacular views of Central Park and the city skyline
