You can visit hundreds of times and still never see it all. 

Visitors and locals alike flock to The Met for its impressive collection of classical, European, American and modern art. 

We recommend visiting on a Friday or Saturday evening, when The Met is open late and less crowded. Meander through the collections undisturbed and then sit down for a glass of wine and entertainment at the Balcony Bar.
