In Praise of Painting: Dutch Masterpieces at The Met
Now on - Oct 4, 2020

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.

Play it Loud: Instruments of Rock & Roll
Now on - Oct 1, 2019

The kerrang of Keith Richards's Les Paul. The crashing rhythm of Keith Moon's drums. The instruments of rock and roll were, and are, every bit as iconic as the masters who played them.

For the first time in a major museum exhibition, the tools of music's loudest movement have been brought together at the Met, with over 130 instruments thrashed by the behemoths of a seismic cultural period on display.

Cast your fan-eye over vintage posters and eye-widening stage get up, and see the instruments wielded by the Beatles, Elvis Presley, Chuck Berry, Jimi Hendrix, Metallica and so many more.

Curated from public and private collections, as well as from the musicians themselves, many of these pieces have never enjoyed public viewing since their glory days on stages around the world.

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. Our mobile ticket gets you one-day, fast-track access to all exhibits at all three Met locations!

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 nearby (10-minute walk) Met Breuer focuses on art of the 20th and 21st centuries. 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.

The Museum is Amazing! Way to big for a day, but as everything in the city, I’m doing my best!
I buy the tickets and I came to the “groups desk” for exchange them for a sticker, ir order to get in. I couldn’t scan my QR code in the machines...
Besides from that, good experience!
