The MET is huge. You can spend 3 hours here and not scratch the surface. From Greek to Asian to Egyptian, European and American art the MET has a massive collection that can appeal to anyone.
Admission here is tricky. They post a recommended price of $25/person but technically you can pay what you want. It really depends on how susceptible to guilt trips you are.

One of my favorite museums in NYC! The exhibits both exceed expectations and enlighten the mind. The MET has a few viewing hours worth of artifact eye candy, insightful events, and during the warm season the rooftop terrace opens for placid crowd socializing (beverages optional) with an excellent view of surrounding buildings past the adjacent horizon of treetops in Central Park.

I've been to museums all over the world, but nothing prepares you for what you see and experience in the Metropolitan Museum of Art. It is simply the greatest museum in the world! I could have spent a whole day itself in the Frank Lloyd Wright room.

The Met is not just an amazing collection, but a cultural icon. So much to see here that you could easily spend a few days.

MET is an eye opener. I like it even more than The Louvre. Who wouldn't be overpowered by its sheer massiveness? What could really match a collection of this size and depth?
I spent a day in MET and every single minute was intense. I went from room to room, from exhibits to exhibits, and still left unfulfilled. I felt like I barely scratched the surface of this mammoth. I want to go back sometime. I need to go back!

Another must see in the city. I prefer the Guggenheim and MoMa but that's because my taste runs a bit more modern. The Met can be absolutely overwhelming. Plan out your attack and try not to see to much in one visit.
The views from the Roof Garden are fantastic and make for a nice break.

We didn't want to spend a whole day in a Museum (On our 7 days trip) and decided to go to the MET for a couple of hours. We have seen a part of the museum, which was amazing. When we come back to New York, we will definitely visit the MET again to see the other parts!

NYC is filled with so many artistic outlets, but if you only have time to visit one museum, the Metropolitan Museum of Art must be it! It offers many new exhibitions each season, but is home to known favorites such as Andy Warhol and Henri Matisse. Located on this Upper East Side, The Met is conveniently located near Central Park and many fine dining options.

Hands-down one of the greatest art museums of the world, a few hours (or days!) here is practically de rigeur for those visiting the city. The building is stunning, and their collection of everything from African Art to Italian Renaissance painting to musical instruments is superb. This museum is practically a site of pilgrimage for me when I'm in the city.
