  • This mobile ticket gets you one day skip the line access to all exhibits at all three Metropolitan Museum of Art locations - the Met 5th Ave, the Met Breuer, and the Met Cloisters
  • With more than two million works of art (not a typo), spanning the entire globe and almost all of human history, this 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 as it's affectionately known) 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 or (The Met) 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.

This reduced a lot of time standing on line. Met staff were not well trained. I ended up bouncing among 3 different employees before being sent to the correct line for entry, due to bad instructions from staff. The place was packed, so it seemed more chaotic.

You still need to exchange your e-tickets for the real ones and luckily there was no line at the service desk and we managed to enter in no time. The museum is absolutely amazing with loads of masterpieces to enjoy. We spent some wonderful hours walking through the museum halls. They also have a very nice buffet in the basement to have lunch.

One of the best museums we've visited in the US. There were long ticket lines in the entrance hall, but not for us. They scanned our code and we went right in.

We did not have to stand in an otherwise long queue. Be prepared to walk if you visit the met so carry water and wear comfy shoes. They need to put in more rest stations as many times there are old people there who get very tired. A wider variety food court may be better than having to be fleeced by the vendors outside.
