    I can't be more clear :
    YOU CAN'T COME IN NY AND MISS THIS MUSEUM !!!
    (If you hate museums perhaps, but that's all!)
    It's excactly the same as The Louvre for Paris. A jewell!!
    Outside this museum doesn't seem so big, but inside, wahooo!!! So hudge. You can spend several days inside.
    250 000 pieces are exposed for a collection of 3 000 000

    The Metropolitan Museum. You could spend days there admiring its collections. The ancient Egyptian collection is very good. BTW, the Met has a good web-site where you can build your own personal collection of your favourites. I take a virtual tour now and again to remind me what i'm missing.

    Modern Art in the NYC Metro Museum of Art

    The NYC museum of modern art no doubt has a better collection and presentation, but there are nevertheless exhibits of modern art at the NYC Met. In this case, we came across a special exhibit.

    Roman & Greek Art hall @ the Metro

    This is the Roman/Greek hall at the Metropolitan Museum... Besides the valuable things there are inside the museum, it's a beautiful building by itself too as you may appreciate in the pictures...

    Buy your tickets online before you leave to prevent yet another line to stand it. Make sure you see everything, there's much to cover!

    Great museums, there's so much and what I absolutely loved about it is its diversity.
    This is my favorite museum along with the Louvres.
    You should at least spend half a day to get a general view.

    Temple of Dendur

    Temple of Dendur Room in the MET.

    This room is probably used for fund raising parties for Museum Memberts.

    A great room for parties.

    Gigantic museum with nearly every great artist and nearly every culture represented. Give yourself at least a day to see it.

    Inside Metropolitan

    Art in the park

    As you could see on the photo it is a big one with a lot of art inside. You will spend a morning or even a day if you like art too much.

    Metropolitan Museum of Art

    The Metropolitan Museum of Art was a great way to spend a relaxing afternoon. It was not too crowded, and it was very interesting.

    It is huge! You better take only 2 hours and try to see only 2 hours of art. Otherwise you will get mad!
    I chose the modern american art: it deserves a visit!

    You can spend days here and not see everything. Great museum. This is a reproduction of a room designed by Frank Lloyd Wright, and is located in the American Wing.

    Swing by the Indo-Pacific wing at the Met

    There're some really cool artifacts in that area from various islands in the Oceania. Like this carving at the bow of a ceremonial canoe...
