The Met is an awesome museum! The entry sequence is daunting however. Find out from the information desk what is the best entrance for exactly what exhibit you want to see, and go into that specific entrance. The payment lines are all the same, so just look for the shortest one. There is a coak check at left which tends to be less crowded than the one at right. Good luck fighting the crowds and enjoy the wonderful art!
Museum is far too huge to see all at once. Take the informal (and VERY enjoyable) free 1-hour tour, as it touches on a few highlights and helps one determine parts of the collection that might interest them most. Impressed that guide was respectful to all questions/comments from children and adults alike.
This museum is expansive, so go in with a plan. If you are hungry you can get stamped and go out and enjoy lunch at a food truck on the steps and go back in; or there is a cafeteria on the bottom floor, a lovely restaurant called The Dining Room (a little pricey, but very good ... and has Central Park view).
Huge museum, so we planned what we wanted to see for sure. We love the impressionists, but the sculpture garden is lovely, and even wandering from floor to floor let's you enjoy the architecture and openness of the building. Would definitely return to continue more exploration.
The Met is one of the few museums that you can pay what you can afford. I believe they suggest $25 a person, but that is only a suggestion. We knew we were only going to be there for approximately an hour or two, so we paid $20 for three of us.
Excellent collection of art works, however, the design of the existing cafeteria is nothing compared to the old one, it actually has changed my desire to visit the museum at all, it seems you are in a basement with artificial lighting, I assume it is because of economics but as I said I would rather go to another museum instead.
MOMA and the Metropolitan Museum of Art for the great masterpieces in art. Also, For those who haven't been to Europe, definitely The Cloisters.
Definitely the Museum of Modern Art (MOMA)/ the Metropolitan Museum of Art and the Whitney Museum particularly the Jeff Koons Exhibition which is a must to visit.
