Guided tours & special events
  • This mobile ticket gets you one-day access to all exhibits at all both Metropolitan Museum of Art locations - the Met on 5th Avenue and the Met Cloisters
  • With more than two million works of art, spanning the entire globe and almost all of human history, the Met is one of the finest collections of art in the world
  • Divided into 17 different curatorial areas, you can pick just a few and really get to know different areas and eras

Take a trip around the world and back in time, through thousands of pieces of priceless art. The Metropolitan Museum of Art (or The Met) is the largest art museum in the United States. Plus, our mobile ticket gets you one-day access to all exhibits at both Met locations – the Met Cloisters is included too!

Real New Yorkers, passionate art lovers, and tourists in the know all have The Metropolitan Museum of Art high on their list. That's because it's one of the premier museums in the world, and brilliantly organized by theme, so you can focus on the areas you're keen on.

Highlights include the European Paintings area with works from El Greco, Rembrandt, Raphael, van Gogh, and many many more. The Temple of Dendur, a full-sized Egyptian temple donated by Jackie Kennedy (with a view of it through the museum’s glass roof from her apartment) is a spectacular feature of the extensive Egyptian collection.

The Period Rooms are another must-see, with original (or lovingly recreated) examples of interior design throughout the ages. Including a grand salon of Louis XIV, an ancient Roman bedroom buried by the eruption of Vesuvius, fixtures from colonial American homes, and more.

The Egyptian Collection is another hit with all ages. Miniature statues, mummy cases, and even a temple to the goddess Isis.

These are, of course, just suggestions. Wander the collections at your own pace, soaking up the history and wonder.

NOTE: The Met's main location is Fifth Avenue. The Met Cloisters is in Washington Heights' Fort Tryon Park. It showcases medieval European art in religious buildings, transported here piece by piece from Europe.

Insider tip

Once you're full of art, hit up the Rooftop Garden Cafe – it has amazing views of New York and Central Park - especially at sunset!
