The Metropolitan Museum of Art (The Met) Review

The Metropolitan Museum of Art (The Met) This is one of the world most beautiful places. I have been to this museum many times, and I always find something new to catch my interest, while enjoying the old favorites as well. The building is huge. There is no way you can see everything in one day, so plan accordingly. Staff are friendly and courteous.

For me, The Met Museum is one of the cheapest places to travel. However the cafe is a bit pricey and the food is just okay. For this, you are allowed to exit the museum for lunch and return. We had timed entry tickets and just had them rescanned when we returned, with no issues. Before leaving, I would ask what the policy is for reentry just in case - there may be a different system if you did not purchase tickets in advance. We bought some sandwiches from the food vendors nearby - $24 for three generous portions. There are also restaurants within walking distance.

After nearly a year and a half of covid, it was a treat to see this "old friend" again. The Met did not disappoint. Lovely experience, especially if you're travel blogger or travel photography person.

I spent a very enjoyable 2 1/2 hours enjoying the selection of European masters paintings in the museum. The exhibits are grouped by dates, and it's worth working through all the rooms in the collection in date order to get the full impact of the collection. Within the rooms covering a single time period, the arrangement of paintings is somewhat random which is annoying, as I prefer to see paintings by an individual artist grouped together.

Access to the paintings is excellent, as you can approach within a couple of feet of the artwork. I made reservations, and went at 1000 when the museum opened. The European paintings area was not crowded, and I was able to enjoy individual paintings with no issues.

There is an excellent overall representation of the masters, with some artists (Monet for instance) having a very large representation. I was luck to be able to enjoy the Dutch Masters collection, which was extremely well presented. Information adjacent to the paintings was concise, interesting, and relevant.

The Met is huge! I knew that before visiting but were still amazed. Sadly, I only had half a day for my visit in that day. You really need two full days (or more) to truly experience this awesome museum. If you don’t have that kind of time, do some research to plan your visit to see your most preferred exhibits.

I made our timed reservation for the met hours opening at 10:00 on Sunday. I first moved slowly through the incredible Egyptian Wing, then sort of breezed the extensive American Wing (be sure to check the mezzanine level). Next, I viewed the very cool Arms and Armor exhibit followed by the equally cool Musical Instruments and gorgeous Asian Art exhibits. It is easy to get distracted by the next interesting item, whether it’s on your preferred list or not. I had to skip several areas to get to the Modern and Contemporary Art exhibit, which led to the 19th and 20th Century European Paintings and Sculpture. These areas were filled with extensive collections of works from the masters of those times. Incredible and beautiful. I finished this visit with a too-short stroll through the Greek and Roman Art exhibit.

I didn’t get to see everything the Met has to offer—I’m not sure that’s even possible. However, I was blown away by what I did get to see! And I will be back! I highly recommend a visit to the Metropolitan Museum of Art.
