“"Good for Days"”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 25 February 2012

The exhibits and the permanent collections are excellent. I have a quarrel with their obvious obfuscation, however. This museum is NOT to charge admission. Admission is by donations, yet the signage leads visitors to believe that they must fork out the high so-called "admission price."

“$$$”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 25 February 2012

Although it lists 'suggested donations' it was more than we could afford for this trip to NYC. And my spouse felt guilty donating less that the suggested amount. So I only got to see the museum store and the entryway.

“Another World!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 24 February 2012

I've been to the Metropolitan Museum of Art countless times and it never ceases to amaze me! There is always more to see than the time I've allowed, and it is a great place to just go paint, read, or just spend some quiet time. It is a suggested admission, so if you don't have the funds, you can just pay what you can. It may be cheaper to buy the membership if you plan to come more than once in a year, and or have children and others with you.
