A must see 8/19/2005

The Met is truly a must see for anyone visiting New York City. The Monet collection and the Egyptian exhibit are not to be missed. One could easily spend more than two days at the Met - the building is huge. Do not allocate less than a day for it - there is just so much to see. The admission fee is just the amount they suggest. You can pay what you want to get in. more

One of the Greatest Museums in the United States. 8/16/2005

There is a superb modern art collection here, as well as my favorite, the Egyptian art. This is the best place to go in NYC if you want to learn about history, culture and art. Make sure that you spend at least a day here to get the most out of everything this museum has to offer. more

Great - Expensive 8/15/2005

This museum has it all. It's so vast you could spend days here. You must visit the Egyptian exhibit. It's been one of my favorites for years. Tons more to see - if you have not been you've got to go. It's a steep entry fee but it's for a good cause. Don't worry about all the tourists - real New Yorkers should go to. more

all you want in a museum 8/12/2005

the MET is perfect for taking a day to stroll through, see some of the world's greatest art. my favorite is the large Egyptian temple room. it's worth the trip by itself. more

One of the world's great museums 8/5/2005

Even if you don't like art you can find something here interesting. There's just so many things in the permanent collection and visiting exhibits. This may also be the biggest bargain in museums, the recommended contribution is not enforced as with other places, so you can pay as little as a penny and still get through the door. However, there's always throngs of people in your way when looking at stuff, and it's a little trek from the subway station. more

Museum Shop 8/4/2005

I am not sure how this store compares to the one in the actual museum, since I have not been to the shop in the museum, but this one has some pretty nice stuff. It is located by Rockefeller Center, so it is not surprising that the store is a bit on the pricey side. They do have some pretty unique gifts though. more

Art 8/4/2005

The Metropolitan Museum of Art, also commonly referred to as the Met, is a great place for those interested in art. It is also a good place to visit to broaden your horizons a bit. You can find all different types of art, from cubism to pointillism to abstract. If you are looking for a place to take your kids for a few hours, this would be a good choice. They will learn and become more cultured individuals. more

Next Time You're Stumped for a Gift 7/22/2005

Next time you're stumped for a gift, try the Met Gift shop. I guess you can't call the posters, art books, mugs, jewelry, serving dishes and toys "originial" since most of them are based on art on display in the museum, but a lot of the pieces for sale certainly are unique. I'm a big fan of the educational children's books and toys - gladiator action figures and monet coloring books beat Teletubies hands down. Admittedly, some of the stuff in the shop is a little tacky, but that's also part of the charm. Someone in your life is bound to get a kick out of a Van Gogh inspired umbrella. If you get the timing right there are some really great deals to be had - I just caught a 50% off sale on a whole bunch of reproduction vases, tea-pots, etc. more
