The Metropolitan Museum of Art is located on 82nd Avenue on 5th Avenue. It is a huge treasure house, occupying four blocks, including more than 3,000,000 exhibits. To really visit the famous hall, it will probably take several and a half days.
Therefore, it is best to draw up a plan for each visit before entering the solemn hall. The museum exhibits works of art from ancient civilizations to contemporary times, including hundreds of masterpieces of world civilizations. The museum not only exhibits paintings and sculptures, but also displays tapestry, musical instruments, clothing and decorations. The five exhibition halls are: European paintings, American paintings, primitive art, medieval paintings and Egyptian antiques. Among the four new side halls, one side hall is used for original art exhibitions, called the Michael C. Rockefeller Hall. The exhibition hall for new weapons and military has also reopened at the end of 1991. There are also many garden courtyards in the museum.
The glass roof rises high from the middle, and it is very pleasant to rest for a while. Of course, you can also buy meaningful souvenirs in the museum shop.
