“A day the MET will bring cultural exposure to art lovers of all levels. Its location can easily become a day of adventure.”
-Carmen Oner, Marketing
The Metropolitan Museum of Art on 5th Avenue at 82nd Street is open every day of the week, ready to host you as you embark on your art viewing journey. Featuring artifacts from over 5,000 years ago, the Met portrays a variety of art from the first cities of the ancient world to the more recent works of our time.
“Having the largest collection of art in the U.S., history buffs, contemporary and experimental hearts all have a place to drool over.”
It's location, rooftop top views and pay-as-you-wish admission (if you’re from New York, New Jersey or Connecticut) makes the Met a perfect place to explore. It's also a perfect shortcut from 82nd street to 86th street station.
“If you have 30 minutes to spare, or hours on end, the Met is perfect for a visit any day of the week.”
Located on museum mile and between Central Park's Delacorte Theatre, the possibility of attending Shakespeare in the park and a picnic in-between calls for a perfect day in the Upper East Side.
“The Met has become my meeting point when I head to the city.”
