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 skip-the-line 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.
Michaelangelo: Divine Draftsman & Designer (13 November 2017 - 12 February 2018)
Legendary artist, sculptor and architect Michelangelo Buonarroti was so impossibly skilled that his contemporaries nicknamed him Il Divino ('The Divine One'). The Met's once-in-a-lifetime exhibition brings together original drawings, paintings, marble sculptures and architectural models to provide a rich retrospective of the master's towering legacy.
David Hockney (27 November 2017 - 26 February 2018)
Over his 60-year career, David Hockney has single-handedly revolutionized the world of painting, bringing his trademark wit and playfulness to any subject he touches. To celebrate his 80th birthday, The Met has assembled his most iconic paintings alongside his forays into photography and video to present a far-reaching retrospective of this legendary talent.
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 farther afield - in Washington Heights' Fort Tryon Park. It showcases medieval European art in religious buildings, transported here piece by piece from Europe.
