The Metropolitan Museum of Art is a must see! We cannot wait to go back! The Arms and Armory exhibit was a real surprise favorite (we are not really "weapons" people per se). We especially loved the Japanese arms section! Our skip the line tickets let us do just that.
I wouldn't bother with the audio guides unless visiting the museum alone. They are much too long-winded and I would just rather discuss the exhibits with my partner than walk around listening to headphones.
Fantastic experience, much, too much to see in one day. I will need to come again and again.
You really need a couple of days to take it all in. Amazing art,, antiquities, a true marvel.
Loved it! The Egyptian, Roman and African sculpture exhibitions were fantastic! Would have liked more time to explore the other exhibits. Highly recommend visiting the roof-top bar for cocktails, you get awesome views of NYC skyline at sunset and it's a great atmosphere.
We were glad to have booked ahead, though on fact there were not long queues. We had a wonderful day in the galleries we most wanted to see, and appreciated the quality of the goods in the store for gifts and souvenirs.
A magnificent experience. Highly recommended, especially The Cloisters.
This is something to remember. I spend 8 hours and only manage to see one floor, is huge and unbelievable art collection. I just wish I had a more time in NY but I will definitely go back there another time.
We needed to allow more time at the museum. On the day we went we did not need to 'skip the line' but it was a good position to be in knowing that if we needed it we had it.
It was great to have the tickets and walk straight into the Metropolitan Museum without waiting. Brilliant Museum and we went to the Cloisters on the same day for the one ticket price. Both venues of the Metropolitan are woth a trip to New York. The Cloisters, as well as being a beautiful example of Romanesque architecture, it is a beautiful backdrop for the Medieval art displayed inside.
