Description

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.

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.

Easy way to set up a visit to the Met ahead of time! When we arrived we went to Advanced Ticket sales desk and got our tickets in very quickly! No line!

If I had known that the exhibition was open to the public, I would not have bought the tickets.

Es necesario dedicar un día completo para recorrer todo el lugar. El audio guía para los que no dominan el inglés es muy útil, porque además trae opiniones de los curadores que trabajan con las obras.
