About the Metropolitan Museum of Art:
More than two million works make up the collection at this NY Attraction. For art lovers, this Museum is not to be missed. Several types of art are represented including ancient Egyptian, African, Asian, Oceanic, Islamic, Byzantine, and more. This Museum is also home to objects including weapons, home furnishings, instruments, and much more.
In addition to the permanent collections, the Metropolitan Museum of Art also hosts many temporary exhibits. Examples of temporary exhibits are Navigating the West: George and Caleb Bingham and the River, Sargent: Portraits of Artists and Friends, Kongo: Power and Majesty, and Masterpieces of French Art Deco. Check the Museum’s website for a list of current and upcoming special exhibitions.
Our Manhattan Hotel is located near this and other top NY Attractions, and this is only one of the City’s fabulous Art Museums. The Cloisters, which is part of the Metropolitan Museum of Art, is also located nearby. This smaller Museum is home to a wonderful collection of medieval art and objects.
MetKids are programs that help get kids of various ages interested in art. Check the website to see if there is a MetKids Event going on during your visit to the City. If you want to see the bulk of what this NY Museum has to offer then you might want to set aside two days. The collections are so vast that if you try to see it all in one day you may feel a bit rushed. If you only have one day then plan ahead by deciding which exhibits you most want to see during your visit.
