The Metropolitan Museum of Art
New York’s Metropolitan Museum of Art attracts nearly as many visitors as other leading galleries like the Louvre or the British Museum. Its roughly 2 million works of art and artifacts cover everything from ancient Egypt to modern art. From the Great Hall, you’ll see the museum’s most important galleries. Pass through the Medieval Europe gallery on your way to the Studiolo from the Ducal Palace. Explore armory form the Middle Ages, including pieces worn by Henry VIII. The American wing hosts the staircase from the Chicago Stock Exchange as well as the famed portrait of Washington crossing the Delaware. A host of European painters including Vermeer, Picasso, and Van Gogh await you as you learn about their troubled yet exciting lives. All the while, your guide will explain how this iconic American museum differs from its older European counterparts, especially since it began before the United States was even 100 years old. Highlights generally include: (if artwork is not on loan or being restored) Henry VIII armor, Tiffany Autumn landscape, Chicago Stock Exchange Stairs, Madame X, Pop culture then and now, Hudson River School,  Washington Crossing the Delaware, Jan Vermeer, Madonna with Child, Picasso, Seurat, Van Gogh, and more.

Our tour guide Matt was great, and he did a great job making it very easy on us at the start. Great review of the highlights but this museum is huge so plan on spending an additional 1-2 hours on your own seeing things not covered by the tour.

Fantastic guide in Mark. His enthusiasm was infectious!! I contacted him early in the day to say an injury to my foot was aggravated, and only my husband would be coming. He encouraged me to come and use a wheelchair readily available inside the MET. It worked out perfectly and the others in the group generously accommodated us.

The tour guide, Matt, was fabulous. We learned a lot more than we would have reading plaques all day. We got to see a lot of key items that would have taken us days to see on our own.
