The Met Breuer is a True gem of a museum. The layout and the exhibitions are quite informative, diverse and easy to manage.
Rather than being huge and cold it’s rather inviting and cozy. The times I have visited its never been crowded like their main building. No lines at all. The staff was friendly and helpful.
The “Like life Sculpture, Color And body” exhibition was simply breathtaking. One is delighted with Sculptures from the 1300s to present.
The Breuer is a nice touch of Modern art to the Metropolitan Museum.
Would not hesitate to visit again or recommend

The Metropolitan Museum of Art is using the Breuer building well with the current retrospective of Leon Golub. Golub's monumentally large figurative paintings provide an incisive critique of the last half of the 20th century, much as Francisco Goya dissected late 18th and early 19th century Europe. His drawings and prints are equally provocative. Not to be missed!

New York State residents still 'pay what you wish'.

This little known museum can be visited as part of the admission ticket to the Met on Fifth Avenue. It is a soulless grey building from the outside but thankfully warm inside. Before we saw the exhibits, we had a lovely lunch in their Flora Bar. The whole atmosphere seemed so much calmer compared to the crowds at the Met. Only two floors were open and we learnt about the works of 2 artists we would otherwise not have known about.

Maybe it is partially my fault. I went on the metmuseum website and thought the Munch exhibit started on the 3rd of February, but that was just the date of a party. Anyway I went back to the website and still can see how I was confused. It said ‘buy tickets’ right under the Munch photo and description. We took the subway in from New Rochelle, which was 40 minutes and is okay, but when we go to the museum, no Munch and only two floors were open. Neither artist was enough to warrant the trip. With the large collection of art held by the Met in storage, please tell me why you can’t put some more art here. Even if you only put a few pieces at each floor landing, while other exhibits are being installed, it would be an opportunity to see them. With this arrangement of only 2 out of 5 floors with art, it is a true waste of gallery real estate. Why not put two Chuck Close paintings on floor 3 and two Jenny Holzer sculptures on floor 4? Or anything? Even let other artists show their work? We paid full price, by the way, family of 3 and knew we didn’t have to.

I expected more if this place as being part of the met. Largely a work in progress and needs for time to set up. I guess two years is not enough, Visit met on 5 th snd d 82 st or cloisters for better work and a better time.
