You don’t have to be a museum buff to appreciate The Met. Escape the chaotic streets of Downtown and enjoy the peace and quiet of the Upper East Side, this stunning and huge building is well worth a wander. With impressive permanent exhibitions and constantly changing featured exhibitions there’s something for everyone. My favourite being The Costume Institute space which showcases the museums fashion exhibits.
The selection of cafes are an attraction in themselves with beautiful views over Central Park and in summer there is even a rooftop cafe and bar to enjoy the views from. Admission allows you full access to the museum plus entry to The Cloisters in the same week…and a little known fact, admission prices are suggested only, you can actually pay whatever you like to enter the museum.
