    One of our favorite NY things to do is have cocktails after work on the roof of the Metropolitan, and take in the best views of Central Park. Open through late fall. Closed on Mondays.

    You probably need two days (or lots of dedication and an early start) to see the Met in its entirety. Go in and grab a map to make your game plan ahead of time if you can. I loved the American wing!

    This place has a fantastic environment. Friendly and welcoming to all yet luxurious and fun. The collection of renaissance art is unbelievable. Check that out if you don't know where else to go.

    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

    3/4/13: The Museum's Islamic wing is open again, after 8 years of expansion and renovation. (Trying to see all [fifteen galleries] in one day will wreck you; come back repeatedly.) Read more

    Tucked away in a back wing of the Met, the Astor Chinese Garden offers a cultured respite from the city. With its imperfectly beautiful rock and shrub formations, it may be just the calm you need. Read more

    In addition to a number of recognizable arts, you get to see a huge collection of various arts as well as timed-exhibits. All included in ticket. And a beautiful Christmas tree during the season!

    The best place to gawk at priceless art has a collection that is seemingly endless, spanning creepy Egyptian tombs to the shimmering Impressionist paintings to an unparalleled costume collection. Read more

    Almost too overwhelming, I think it would take a week to see everything. I thought all the furniture was cool. I definitely appreciate the museum more now than as a teenager. Get a map, you'll need it

    The Damascus Room is a wood-paneled 18th century Ottoman reception room in the gallery of Islamic art. It hails from an upper class Syrian home and was likely used in the winter to keep guests warm. Read more

    Went with low expectations and was pleasantly surprised. The modern art, tribal art, and antique furniture sections were particularly interesting. Don't miss the view from the newly opened rooftop!!

    That's my spot! The museum feels endless. The collections make your mouth water if you like history. Wear coZy shoes and if the day is nice, you can hit the roof for a glass of wine.

    If I had to pick one museum to visit in NYC it would be THE MET. Keep in mind that you probably won't be able to see everything in one day. The entrance price is suggested. 👌🏻

    It's the number one attraction in NYC. It has everything you need to clear your head & fill it with a fantastic dose of culture. No matter how often you visit, you'll always discover something new.

    The halls are huge here. The Egyptian exhibit is a must for anyone with kids. We spent three hours at the museum & felt like we could have spent another 10 and still not seen everything.

    There are several ways to impress those in the art world. Shouting out “Show me the Monet!” while perusing the impressionist section is, I promise you, not one of them.

    The Met is one of the best museums in the world. The Egyptian exhibit will make you believe you are back in 1550 BC and the height of the Egyptian empire.

    This museum is huge! You'll need to set aside a whole day just to explore every bit of it! Extremely impressive. Make sure it's on your list if you're visiting New York!

    The hidden jewel of this place is the Asian wing. Take your time here to spend at least one or more full days here to really enjoy and take it all in. This is one of the best museums in the world!!

    If the Met is overwhelming, why don't you contact Museum Adventures? Great for kid/ family tours but also adults- the tours are fun, insightful and speedy!

    I'm a sucker for art museums, and the Met is in the top tier of art musems around the world. A gold standard in the world of museums. There are not enough superlatives to describe how incredible it is

    Simply one of the greatest museums in the world for art. Sit on the steps and be cool. Don't miss the roof and the greatest views of Manhattan.

    Take the elevator in the European Sculpture and Decorative Arts galleries up to the Roof Garden Café and Martini Bar. It’s open from May through the fall and offers panoramic views of the city.

    The best museum in NYC, you can return many times and continue to discover wings that you've never been to. This museum is not only about art but also a way to discover history through art.

    Everyone knows The Met is the city’s most epic museum, with a vast collection from ancient to modern. I don’t have to tell you that it is a must see. I love to twirl around the period rooms alone... Read more

    You can spend all day here and not see it all! If you're short on time do some research before you get there! The European rooms will make feel like you're in Paris! Greek & Roman statues! And more

    BEST MUSEUM EVER. Even though you can't view everything properly in just one day, it's amazing to browse between galleries. And the building itself is wonderful!

    Love this place and will visit again in the near future. I recommend their collection of European, Medieval and Egyptian art. You can pay what you want for admission - as long as it's above $0.00.

    The knights is a great exhibit for kids. The Egyptian art is a must-see, the Asian art is a very pleasant exhibit, and the paintings is a favorite!

    The Met is really free. The donation is only suggested. You can pay as much or as little as you wish. If you can afford to pay full amount, great, but don't let it stop you from going with the family.

    Aside from an iconic art collection, the Met offers engaging daily family programs for toddlers and small children, including storytelling and art walks, both included in the museum's admission.

    The indoor courtyard in the Americas wing 1st floor (Room 700) is a great base, particularly when visiting with kids -- it's an effective hub with good seating and space for kids to move around.

    if you're looking for a not-crowded area to sit and sketch, the new american wing is usually pretty empty (especially compared to the european paintings galleries).

    Admission is just a suggestion - if you are brave enough to say something when they ask you for the admission fee, you won't have to pay. Also sit on the Met Steps for a Blair moment.

    One if the best museums in the world. The Temple of Dendur is a must see. In the summer check out the rooftop bar - great place to unwind with a great view of Central Park.
