WHY I LOVE THE MET IN NYC AND YOU WILL TOO
I love The MET. If you are planning a trip to New York, add The MET (Metropolitan Museum of Art) to the list of things you need to see during your visit.
The MET was founded on April 13, 1870 to encourage and develop the study of the fine arts, and over the years has become the largest art museum in the United States! The massive building (see the image that I shared at the start of this post) is perched on the edge of Central Park on Fifth Avenue in the Upper East Side. The museum’s permanent collection contains over two million works, that are enjoyed by more than 6 million visitors per year.
I’ve had the opportunity to visit The MET many times over the years, and I can’t help but gasp each time I enter the Greek and Roman art wing. The way that bodies used to be carved out of marble is mesmerizing, I highly recommend you spend some time checking out the sculptures in the gallery. I could sit and look at paintings or sculptures all day long.
I am looking forward to visiting The MET soon. I’d like to check out the “A New Look at Old Masters” exhibit. This exhibit includes paintings by Peter Paul Rubens, Anthony van Dyck and François Boucher. Visiting museums during chilly Fall or Winter days is one of my favorite things to do in the city,
* Update: March 2022 – I went to see two exhibitions at The MET: Dutch Masterpieces & A New Look At Old Masters. Both were a total dream. If you appreciate seeing the work of great artists of former times, I highly recommend checking out both.
MET MUSEUM STORE
Next time you visit the museum, don’t miss the gift shop where you can find around 300 art-infused gifts for just about everyone! Books, stationary, jewelry, clothing, accessories and home décor, The MET store has it all.
