Make My Trip


You'll need at least 3 hours to browse the permanent exhibitions and up to around 5. If you'd like to explore the time sensitive exhibitions also you can easily spend the whole day here being enchanted by it's endless artistic offerings.

NYC is a great year round destination, but during peak seasons, can be extremely busy and expensive, therefore the shoulder seasons of Spring and Autumn are the best periods to visit.

A smaller offshoot of the Metropolitan Museum of Art, The Met Cloisters Gallery specialises in European medieval art and architecture.

Absolutely. Everything from clothing to jewellery, ornaments and books, the gifts are as carefully designed and displayed as their exhibition counterparts.
