In a...

The entire time I walked around the Met, I was in awe. The art and the exhibits are set up so well. I was able to see paintings by my favorite artists up close.

Admission for adults is $12.00 and it is definitely worth the price because there is so much to see! You could spend days here and not see everything!

There is so much to see at the Met you could spend an entire day there and still feel that you had not seen everything. I?ve been back twice and seen something new each time.

This is huge place and you can''t see it all in one shot. I like to do one or two areas and then run out and grab a beer or snack.
