The Metropolitan Museum of Art has art from almost every period of history from all over the world. The most impressive part is the Egyptian section. Besides just having statues and sarcophaguses there is a room with a lake. The lake surrounds a life size section of an Egyptian building that you can walk through. The collection of musical instruments is impressive since you can actually see how one instrument evolved into the next one. The armor collection and the garden room are also some of my favorites. Admission is a suggested donation.
