One of the best museums in the world. Incredible art from just about every period - sculptures, temple, artifacts from 2000BC to more recent - there is a rich history and beauty all around. We have come here a number of times and always find something new. While the entry fee is "suggested" we always pay the recommended amount. You would be hard pressed to spend half a day walking through all of the exhibits and not feel like you got a bargain. Everyone on staff has been friendly and knowledgeable. We will keep coming back.

This museum has it all. They have tons of standard stuff from every period in history, and they're constantly improving their exhibitions. On top of all that, their periodic special exhibits are always amazing and try to cater to lovers of all types of art. The roof view is breathtaking and summer exhibits there never disappoint. There's definitely way too much to see in 1 trip there. I'd recommend choosing a few periods or exhibitions, and really spending time in those areas. I did that the other day and was there for 4 hours. What a day!

The Met and MoMA are my two favorite museums in NYC. I like the Met because of the seemingly infinite amount of paintings/artwork/sculptures there. You can get lost in this museum and never want to leave. I especially like the African art (although I wish the section was bigger), Egyptian pieces and the Monet collection. It's always filled with tour groups and tourists but I don't mind because the art is just beautiful.

It was amazing to be able to wander through an entire exhibit of Korean art, from celadon pottery to ink paintings. The mother-of-pearl inlaid boxes reminded me of my halmuni's jewelry box. I can't wait to go back and see more.

This is an amazing museum! Everytime I come to New York and spend a few hours here studying the paintings and analyzing the sculptures. This is easily one of my favorite museums. I love all the paintings of Monet that they have. They hold a lot of his lilypad painting which I can't help but get lost in. The marble sculptures create a frozen forest of white men and women, their forms forever held in the quiet space around them. Come and feel the art!

Great place for art and to see the beauty that people created. It is very, i mean very touristic sometime, so if you have a free week day, and you are looking for something interesting, it may be the best time. Or do what i do, wait for guests from out of NYC, and take them there. And for all people, there is no need to take 1,0000 pictures, the flashes camera can do a lot of damage, so if you want people to still enjoy the place in 100 years, easy on the flash.
