Very informative tour through the museum. We can definitely recommend this guided tour - also as a good starting point for your own explorations through the museum after the tour has ended.
Meet your Metropolitan Museum of Art tour guide in front of the Met. Use your skip-the-line admission ticket to avoid the heavy crowds waiting to get in.
Your tour begins in the Ancient Egypt section of the museum. From here, you see the armor of King Henry VIII, the Antioch Chalice, and ancient Greek and Roman artifacts. Your guide describes the history and significance of each artifact in the collection as you go.
Next, view masterpieces by European masters such as Vincent van Gogh, Claude Monet, and Auguste Rodin before heading up to the rooftop garden to take in sweeping views over Central Park.
If you’ve chosen the longer tour time, continue through areas of Dutch, Italian, and Spanish paintings by artists such as Rembrandt and El Greco.When your tour ends, you can stay and explore the Met on your own, or continue on your New York City adventure.
