The Metropolitan Museum of Art is easily one of the best art museums in the world. With works spanning six continents and over 6,000 years, the museum is so vast you could easily spend days getting lost inside. If you don’t have days to spare, this tour cuts to the core and takes you to all the highlights in just 2 hours!
Traverse the globe without even leaving Central Park! Begin in Ancient Egypt and behold the perfectly preserved ancient Egyptian tomb models. Imagine what life was like in the times of Tutankhamen as you look at tiny dioramas and learn about the fascinating burial rituals of the era. Then you’ll see the prize jewel of the museum – the Temple of Dendur, an Ancient Egyptian Temple right in the middle of New York City!
More highlights from your Metropolitan Museum of Art tour will be the armour of Britain’s infamous King Henry VIII, and the Antioch Chalice, who some claim as “The Holy Grail”. Head back in time to see works of Greek statuary and Roman frescoes before moving onto the exotic Papua New Guinea. You’ll then go up to the second floor to see some of Claude Monet’s famous Water Lillies, Vincent Van Gogh’s expressive works and the iconic bronze of Rodin’s Thinker.
*You’ll end your tour on the rooftop garden to enjoy breathtaking views of New York City. Gaze across the green of Central Park as its framed by the city skyline.
