    Sitting along "Museum Mile", or Fifth Ave next to Central Park, the Met is one of the largest and most important museums of art in the world.

    You'll want to claim a patch of grass on this stunning rooftop bar overlooking CentralPark. Get there before rooftop season is over. RFN. (212-535-7710)

    The Met is one of the largest museums in the world and is so expansive that you should plan on spending an entire day exploring (and you probably still won’t see half of it)! There is everything here, and they have a beautiful rooftop garden.

    Seeing Autumn Rhythm in person can hit you like an emotional bulldozer. When Jackson Pollock laid his canvases on the ground and dripped paint across the large surfaces, he invented action painting.

    I'm a history freak and love museums. I could have spent several days here, and if I lived closer I would be a member. If you like museums, come prepared to spend a lot of time here. It is beautiful and has fabulous exhibits. You can eat here in the cafeteria, but it is expensive. We were surprised at the price of a frozen yogurt, so if you have kids...tread (or pour) lightly!

    Was only able to stay 2 hours due but could easily have spent 4-5 hours. The museum is HUGE so if you have time constraints need to decide which parts you want to see. We did a very quick walk through some of the Egyptian and Roman exhibits and then headed for the contemporary art section and ended with the rooftop exhibition. There is a suggested fee of $25 but as we were not going to stay for long, paid $10 - well worth it to see Van Gogh's remarkable self potrait!

    Any trip to NY without a visit to the Met is an injustice. Give what you can at the door and get inside. Open up a world in the capital of the World.

    This was the only museum I got to visit, but it was so worth it! You determine your entrance fee, although there is a suggested price. Give yourself plenty of time to see everything because this museum is big! Highly recommended for everyone of all ages.

    The Met is remarkable. Thr extensive array of artwork is truly mind blowing - there's always something that fits your taste. If you have time, it is a must-see. No question. Tips - wear comfy shoes. The place is massive and youll likely walk miles upon miles. No need foe fashion here, just think comfort. Also, if you can swing it, hire a guide or at least join a group tour. Its fun to walk the grounds by yourself but to really get the background storylines on the work, a guide is a needed asset. Enjoy!

    The MET is massive. We expected to spend an hour or two, and did. We probably saw 20% of it, and did not take the time to absorb the significance of the art. The rooms are a maze and there is very little way to progress logically, particularly since we did not get a map. We will go back someday and plan to spend all day and hopefully not miss many of the master pieces on display.

    I love the Met. For me it was one of the attractions of visiting New York. It is immense and covers so much. Famous European art, Egyptian temples, armour, art from around the world, a Frank Lloyd Wright room, etc. Stunning. To see the same in London you would have to visit the National Gallery, The British Museum and the Victoria and Albert Museum. There's a good view from the rooftop too.

    After visiting the Central Park, we went on to visit this museum which in short is called "The MET". This is the largest art museum in the United States which covers more than two million square foot. Watch for daily events as these vary from week to week. This art museum presents more than 5000 years of art and opens 7 days a week with longer hours on weekends. At times this could be very crowded. Normal adult ticket costs $25 but it's up to you how much you pay. With same-day admission ticket you can also visit the Met Breuer on Madison avenue and 75th Street and The Met Cloisters which is overlooking the Hudson River in the northern Manhattan's Fort Tryon Park. When visiting the MET request a museum map so that you follow up otherwise you my miss interesting works of art. If you are very interested in these works of art prepare for a good number of hours because you will fall in love with a good number. At times the MET could get crowded. Worth a visit!!!

    One of my must sees for our week in NYC. Enjoyed, but not as much as I expected. We are however very spoilt in London and have a lot of wonderful galleries on our doorstep. A must visit however for art enthusiasts.

    Come early and stay late. This museum has everything you could ask for. I particulary enjoyed the Imari and other china. There is nothing that this museum doesn't have to show. Wear your best walking shoes and check your coat and bag. Please look at the brochures they hand out at the door or you will get lost. It you spend more than three hours checking things out, have a rest or things will start to get blurry. Even the cafés and restaurants are good but a little pricy.

    The MET is an amazing museum and one that you can visit time and time again. I went for a specific exhibit but if you are visiting from out of town it's worth getting an overview tour and then going to any of the special exhibits.

    If you have never been this is a must see Museum! You could spend a week there and not see everything the Museum has to offer.

    Probably one of the most interesting places in New York. A great place to visit as a family: kids can really have a great time.

    The Met is only two floors but it is immense. Covering all the typical art periods and antiquities of other museums, it isn't that it is different - just that there are so many examples of each. You'll need a long time to see it all. A quick walk through of just the first floor tool two hours. Cost is only suggested - you are free to pay what you wish.

    Other museums may have more depth in one area or another, but the Met has one of the finest collections housed in one of the finest buildings we have seen on five continents. Yes, it attracts large crowds. Some of the staff are probably not the best available. But on the whole its collections can't be beat. Has several dining options. A must for any serious art lover.

    For the fist time I went to the MET with my kids, hhey had a blast. Ghe egyptian exhibition, with its many mummies are gun for kids. The boys also line the knohhts armours and the Japanes samourai area. A good way to bring kids in a cultural venue but still exciting.

    We used to live in NYC and we visit regularly now, but we had never been to The Met, so on this trip we decided to stop in for a late night visit on a Saturday night. We arrived around 630 and stayed until about 845pm. One of the great things about The Met is that it is a "pay what you can Museum". They recommend $25 for adults, $12 for kids, and free for 12 and under. It is worth the investment in the arts if you can afford it, but if you cannot, you can still go and and "pay what you can" at the desk. The audio tour is worth the extra information - $7/headset. Enjoy!

    My eyes were so overwhelmed! I just couldn't believe how much there was to take in! Incredible! Amazing! I still didn't see everything. That just means I have to return again some day!

    This is a good place to eat and allow the brain a little respite and to absorb the artefacts you have just seen! There's also a lovely view if you sit by the window! The prix fixe two course lunch is good value at $37 with a reasonable selection of food, and it's very nice to receive quiet and attentive service. It's possibly better to book but if you arrive early you can probably get a table.
