A grand setting for one of the world's greatest collections of art, from ancient to contemporary.- Google
"Especially LOVED the Alexander McQueen exhibit a few years ago."
"The newly renovated American, Greek and Roman wings are beautiful."

I have been going to the Met for 30 plus years and seen it devolve into a toilet bowl of mediocrity. A truly great museum and collection that has succumbed to the marketing strategy of numbers = success hence the experience is more akin to a visit to a barnyard or the Lexington Line at rush hour- this defeats the purpose of having a place to contemplate art when surrounded by hordes of people who really don't know why they are there other than that they have succumbed to a marketing campaign. No space, oxygen nor atmosphere to permit enjoying it for those that are actually there to see/appreciate art. it's like standing in the middle of the Hershey store in Times Square: all you can think of is: what are all these people doing here and someone Please Get Me Out of Here! O, and the best: the restrooms are like visiting those at Port Authority. Just gets worse every year. Thank the legacy of Mr De Montebello and the mega-death spectacle show that was his legacy. Art of the masses, indeed. Those of you seeking spectacle: please go to the Lego store and leave the rest of us in peace. Thanks~

What an amazing experience. We made it to the met just in time. It had started to rain and, while walking through Central Park a lot of fun for me, I don't think my SO was quite as excited. The museum was extremely crowded, which normally makes me claustrophobic. On this occasion, however, I couldn't care less. The amount and quality of the art here is truly amazing. My favorite section is modern/contemporary but there is something here for every taste. I only wish we could have set aside a full day for this visit.

The museum itself was amazing, breathtaking, and jaw dropping at every turn. Even my kids loved it and appreciated the incredible amount of art on display. Now for the bubble burst... The RUDEST New Yorkers I have ever encountered work at the Met. Beyond ridiculous and over the top, the guards were unprofessional and scolded us multiple times for touching art we were just standing near, not touching!!!!. They were so unpleasant it put a huge damper on the visit, however, if your able to ignore the Militant art police the museum is a must see!

THE MET NAZI GUARDS WILL GIVE YOU THE MET NAZI EXPERIENCE VIA THE CEO THOMAS P CAMPBELL. Want to feel like you are in Nazi Germany? Walk into the Met. Carry a separate bag and put your books or souvenirs or whatever you bought in the City that day and also add wrapped brand new brownie that you plan to eat later in the day. Menendez, the Met guard will put his dirty hand in your bag, without your permission, pull out the brownie, squishing it, acting like he's found a nuclear bomb with a stupid smile that he has saved everyone at the Met!! He will then tell you to get out of the Met, he and his guards will force your family out of the museum because of your wrapped up new brownie, he will use German Words expressing that you are slow. Though CEO Campbell's rules are not posted, His guard will not hold the brownie for you so that you can view the Met and be allowed to pick it up later. You and family will be forced out the museum. THOMAS P CAMPBELL CEO is satiated that another Met regular who donates there will be emasculated by this experience of overblown post-9/11 hired moron saving us from a brand new wrapped brownie safely in a bag. That's what happened to us today, June 25th, 2015.

This museum is most definitely a 5 stars museum. Clean, everything is in place, professional people, and headphones that really make it so much more interesting. I just couldn’t get enough of this place. Take your time, appreciate the beauty, put your phone away for a while, and go back in time. Even if you are not into art, you must visit this place at least once, I find it hard to believe the there is someone who won’t find at least one piece there beautiful. And the head phones really make it more special, since when there is a story, things looks different, and get much deeper meaning.

Great museum. Luckily, being a New Yorker, I know that one day is not enough. This place is massive and filled with great pieces of art. Love hearing all the different languages spoken by all those inside the museum travelling to see this beautiful museum. Once spring time rolls around and into summer and fall, the rooftop opens up with lush views of Central Park, and expensive, but strong martinis.

I Agree with Dr. De Lucia, that cop at the met museum all dressed in white with badges and a fancy uniform was a terrible arrogant man who ruined our day at the met museum. This cop hired by the met was so nasty to my mother and father and he starts to speak German at my parents when their parents, my grand parents, were Polish Jewish survivors at Nazi concentration camps. The cop is MELENDEZ or MENENDEZ. starts digging his hands in my mothers purse and he pulls out her cough drops and tells her she can't come in with them. My father tries to argue with this idiot holding my Mom's box of cough drops, Melendez, the cop made my Dad throw them out, yelling "Achtung" at Dad. The met museum is hiring some bad people. My Mom and Dad were shook up, didn't enjoy the show. I guess Mr. Thomas Campbell, CEO of the met museum wants the met museum to be German.

I write this as a person who is not a avid fan of art of museums in general. With that said, I found this place to be amazing. Like art?... then you'll be in heaven. Don't like art?... you're still bound to be entertained. The place is huge.... the rooms, exhibits, themes, wings, and halls just seem to go on forever. The architecture of the museum itself is enough to take your breath away. It's an amazing place and with a gazillion exhibits, it's a safe bet that everyone is going to have plenty to enjoy.
