Museum Visit | Metropolitan Museum of Art

It’s almost ridiculous that it has taken me this long to get to the Met, but none of my previous travels have ever actually taken me into Manhattan. On a recent visit to the area I had an afternoon free and snuck into the city with the sole intention of visiting the venerable museum.

My only disappointment? That I didn’t have more time. Let’s just say that next time I will plan at least two full days. I only scratched the surface of their collection. I’ve included some photos below (pardon the cameraphone quality).

My favorite pieces included works by Pollock, Chuck Close, Corbet, Degas, Rodin, and Gauguin (I’ve always had a weakness for Gauguin). The Greek gallery was overwhelming, but spectacular.

My only words of wisdom on visiting the museum would be to use public transit to get there. I drove my rental in, and though the museum does have a parking facility, it took me over 3 hours to get out of the city in afternoon traffic. Oh . . . and wear comfortable shoes.
