Metropolitan Museum of Art Admission with Skip-the-Line Access and The Cloisters

Marvel at the Temple of Dendur, the centerpiece of the museum's Egyptian art department

The Metropolitan Museum of Art, better known simply as the Met, is the largest art museum in the United States and among the most-visited art museums in the world. The Met was founded in 1870 by a group of American citizens — businessmen and financiers as well as leading artists and thinkers of the day — who wanted to create a museum to bring art and art education to the American people. The museum presents dozens of exhibits each year as well as thousands of events and programs including films, talks, performances, guided tours and family activities.

This Metropolitan Museum of Art ticket introduces an abundance of art in 17 curatorial departments. There are 4,000 musical instruments on display here, plus armor and weapons of sculptural and ornamental beauty from Europe, the Middle East, Asia and America. Look for European paintings, sculptures, drawings and prints and more than 20,000 photographs acquired by the museum over the past 80 years.

And if that weren’t enough, this ticket also includes same-week admission to the Cloisters museum and gardens. The museum is located a 30-minute subway ride from midtown Manhattan in Washington Heights, with exhibits and displays devoted to the art and architecture of medieval Europe.

Upgrade this ticket to include a Skip-the-Line option, which could save up to an hour of time given the museum’s tremendous popularity. Plus, listen to an audio guide with more than 100 hours of informative commentary from expert curators and educators.

One of the best museums I've been to. Compares to the British Museum, the Cairo Museum and the museums in the capital. Can be very crowded but on the Sunday it was really reasonable. Skip the line access is the way to go.

Excellent. Tour. Make sure you wait for a guided tour. Check the schedule. It was well worth it. I spent the entire day and still didn't see it all.

I got to see a highlighted tour of the Met, as well as a lovely tour of the Cloister and its quite pretty gardens the next day. The Cloisters gave me reason to go to Fort Tryon Park, with its arresting views of the Hudson and nearby New Jersey plus the George Washington Bridge.
