Huge museum with collections for everyone. Probably best if you check on forehand what you want to see and what you can possibly skip, because the museum is simply huge and after some hours of walking, it could occur that you don't pay enough attention anymore to the things you wanted to see ;) I was impressed by the huge amount of artefacts and the info given to it. One of my favourite wings were the ones from Oceania, Ancient Greece, the Ancient Near East and Meso America.
Bring a good camera with you with enough space left on the memorycard and make sure you have enough batterypower, you'll need it ;)

I never thought I'd be fascinated by art but believe me, you will be amazed at how time just flies by and you wanna see more! Try to set aside at least half a day for the Met and visit every single section. I pretty much breezed through the Egyptian collection (too boring) and the Holy Art collection (too bloody for my taste) but spent absolutely hours at the portraits. In the end, I spent 2 days at the Met and I still have not seen my fill. It's an amazing journey and at the Met is where I absolutely fell in love with the whimsical romance of Cot's portraits..

The Metropolitan Museum of Art, known colloquially as The Met, is an art museum located on the eastern edge of Central Park, along what is known as Museum Mile in New York City, USA. It has a permanent collection containing more than two million works of art, divided into nineteen curatorial departments. The main building, often referred to simply as "the Met," is one of the world's largest art galleries, and has a much smaller second location in Upper Manhattan, at "The Cloisters," which features medieval art.

Amateur de musÃ©e, le MET est un lieu magique oÃ¹ l'on pourrait passer des heures et des heures. Eu la chance de voir l'expo Picasso dÃ©but mai 2010. En visite guidÃ©. Si vous y allez, je vous conseille d'aller sur le toit du musÃ©e pour faire le parcours en bambou qui vous Ã©levÃ© encore plus haut pour vous offrir une vue unique de Manhattan sur central park unique. De plus c'est un bon plan car le musee est une sorte d'assos, vous ne donnez que ce que vous voulez pour payer votre entrÃ©e. Bonne visite :)
