Trip Advisor Review of The Metropolitan Museum of Art: “I have been to this museum many times. It is among my favorite places in NewYork. The art covers a vast array of different time periods and regions of the world. It’s hard to pick a favorite section as they all offer something unique and amazing. The building itself is also very fascinating. On weekends be sure to check out whether they offer bar service on the main balcony as there is often a string orchestra playing. It adds to the ambiance of the museum and is an incredible treat. If you are only visiting one museum in NYC this would be my pick.”
