Our neighborhood is full of stunning historical and iconic landmarks, but few are as highly patronized or lauded over as the Metropolitan Museum of Art.
If you’ve never been to The Met before, you’re in for a treat—a large treat. The museum is enormous, covering almost a half square mile of a city block in addition to being nestled within Central Park grounds. Because of its sheer size, it’s a good idea to check out The Met’s website and get an idea of what exhibits mean the most to you. Or go all out. One can easily spend the entire day at The Met. We recommend starting with a side wing (Greco-Roman to the left side or Egyptian to the right side) and working your way through 5,000 years of art, history, and culture. Once you’re finished with your tour of The Met, make your way Uptown to The Met: Cloisters. As part of your ticket purchase, you’ll also receive admission to the architecture exhibit of Medieval Europe, new to The Met family. Check back as we continue to expand on our spotlight of the Metropolitan Museum of Art.
