America's top museum, in the most famous park.


The Metropolitan Museum of Art, America's most popular art museum has great art and great stories.

Founded by the same people as Central Park, including the artists and architects who inspired its rustic landscape architecture.

See how they complement each other, and thrill in the greatest urban treasures in the known universe.

Experience why Central Park is America's largest work of art.

It is the home of the Metropolitan Museum of Art, which has the most famous American painting.

These works of art, and the park is a work of art, is inspiring! So much beauty.

I created this unique tour for ToursByLocals, and it really gets my endorphins flowing!

Itinerary

Nature inspired the art which inspired Central Park.

Experience masterpieces of the Metropolitan Museum of Art, with an emphasis on American Art, the Hudson River School of Painters, Romantic European Art, and Asian Art.

These influenced the design and development of Central Park. In the park, we will experience the park's responses. Central Park looks natural by design. It is America's largest art work.

We will see how the Met Museum relates to the park from inside and out, maybe from above.

Let's survey some of the most famous collections and works, such as Ancient Egypt, Rome and Greece. European Paintings, Impressionists, Asian Art, and Modern Art.

We can customize the visit based on your interests, and include special exhibits, which are included as part of your admission.

We will have a lunch break based on your preference.

We will explore most of the park's famous iconic sights and vistas.

Central Park is made for pictures, and it was made by pictures and a poet.

You will feel great!
