Arts & Culture

The finest museum in New York. "Suggested Admission" means if you buy tickets at the museum ticket counter, the amount you pay is up to you. Ticket includes same-day admission to The Met Fifth Avenue, The Met Breuer, and The Met Cloisters. Met Rooftop Bar and Garden offers sweeping views of Central Park and can be enjoyed with wine, cocktails, and light bites. It is often busy with crowds but the scenery and the atmosphere make it well-worth a trip. Try to go on a weekday when the crowds have thinned and don't miss Temple of Dendur in the Egyptian section!
