New York City ATTRACTIONS See all

Metropolitan Museum of Art

The Met is one of the world's most prestigious cultural hubs, up there with the Louvre, the British Museum, and the Vatican for sheer pulling power.

Around five million visitors a year flock here to drink in the rarefied air, rest their legs in the Egyptian Temple of Dendur, admire the Tiffany glass, and view Old Masters.

If time allows, you'll also find Roman statues, musical instruments, modern artworks and Egyptian artifacts. The Met is a fine place to immerse yourself in American art. A highlight is the series of period rooms, and paintings by Whistler and Sargent.

Take a tour of the highlights, dine on the Great Hall Balcony or have a drink in the rooftop martini bar.

Practical Info

Set back from Fifth Avenue on the eastern edge of Central Park, the Metropolitan Museum of Art is the star attraction of Museum Mile. Medieval art is showcased at the Cloisters in Upper Manhattan.

To get here, catch a Fifth Avenue bus or the subway to 86th Street.
