Explore The New York Metropolitan Museum of Art
A MET tour is something you don't want to miss: from Ancient Egypt to Modern America in just 3 hours!
A cleverly planned itinerary covers 5, 000 years and five continents - from a colossal Egyptian temple to ancient Roman frescoes, paintings by Van Gogh and Monet, magnificent Tiffany windows, and more. A great answer for those with limited time or traveling with children.
The museum was created by a group of citizens whose mission was to open up a world of art to all Americans. Over its almost 150 year history the museum has collected works from across the globe, by world-famous artists such as Raphael, Van Gogh, Rembrandt, Picasso and Vermeer.
Join me on a fun journey through the many worlds of the MET, for a museum experience quite unlike any other.
We'll meet at the Great Hall, left side where the seats are. I'll take you in a 3 hour voyage in time across the planet, to show you the best the MET has to offer: Egyptian, Roman and Medieval Art, Primitive and Pre Colombian Art, the Masters of Impressionism: Manet, Monet and Van Gogh, the Dutch Golden Age of painting with Rembrandt and Vermeer, the Musical Instruments gallery, the American paintings wing and much more.
And May through October at the end of your tour you can enjoy the Roof Garden, a drink with a beautiful views of Central Park. Then, if you want you can go back down and start over again!

Loved this tour! Francesco was extremely accommodating since 4 of the 8 of us were running late to our meeting time. He is extremely knowledgeable, patient, and answered all of questions! I highly recommend booking a tour with Francesco!!
