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.
Absolutely the best museum I have ever been to. I definitely did not come to NYC for the museums but I can tell you now I would go back just for this place alone. Make sure that this is on your list of places to go in NYC. Price should not be an issue as you can pay what you want to enter, so no excuses.
The MET is an absolutely great museum. If you ever make to NYC you have to visit the place. The submission cost is low and the value you get out of it is worth it. This museum is so big that you honestly can't visit only once. Every art has a little bit of history attached so take your time to read and absorb all this place have to offer. Make sure you wear confortable shoes, don't bring a backpack or if you do they have a place where you can safely check it in. I do not recommend kids unless they can at least read and have some desire to learn about art. I've visited this place probably over 10 times and I still have not covered every part of it. Enjoy it.
If you love art and you love museums then The MET is one of the best in the world for you. It will be difficult to see all of it in a day. It feels like it is 5 museums in one. I love coming here once or twice a year and always marvel at something new I may have missed or catch some of their new exhibits. Expect to spend a minimum of 2 hours at this Museum or 2 years, because it is that big lol. Also, it is a suggested donation museum. So it is very affordable. Just say the amount of tickets you want and give them the amount you wish to pay. They have a rooftop garden that has cool views of Central Park and you can get some beverages while there. There are also 2 different types of tours. 1-Self-guided tour which is more expensive. They give you a device which lets you the input exhibit number and you get more info on it. 2- Highlights tour is free and the guides are pretty good and are very knowledgeable about the exhibits! Amazing museum!
