One of the world’s largest and finest treasure troves of art, the Metropolitan Museum holds more than two million works spanning 5,000 years of world culture, from prehistory to the present and from every part of the globe. A visit to its two-million-square-foot building – which had 6.28 million visitors just last year – will always inspire. Located on the edge of Central Park along Fifth Avenue, the Met’s main building houses its vast and superlative collection, from works of African and Oceanic art, arms and armor, Asian art, and costumes, to European paintings, European sculpture and decorative arts, medieval and Renaissance art, musical instruments, drawings, prints, antiquities from around the ancient world, photography, and modern and contemporary art. To experience the art, architecture, and gardens of medieval Europe, with spectacular views of the Hudson River, visit The Cloisters museum and gardens – the Met’s branch museum in northern Manhattan.
