In Praise of Painting: Dutch Masterpieces at The Met
Now on  - Oct 4, 2020  ( ends in 13 days )

The work of Rembrandt, Hals, Vermeer and their contemporaries have long been some of the Met's highlight pieces. United by this long-running exhibition, there's rarely been a better time to view the Netherlands' 17th-century masterpieces in such great context.

Housed side by side, these masterstrokes of the Dutch Golden Age provide a unique visual commentary on the period's tensions between realism and idealism, exploring key cultural issues of the time. Don't miss your chance to view over 60 remarkable works, including some which seldom enjoy time on display.

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, fast-track 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!
