What to expect

The Metropolitan Museum of Art is packed with countless artistic and historic treasures spanning 5,000 years and six continents. Needless to say, making sense of it all on your own can be quite the challenge—especially if you don't even know where to begin.

This 2-hour experience will showcase the highlights—and even a few hidden gems—of the Met, with a knowledgeable art expert guide to lead the way. As you travel back in time to Ancient Egypt gaze up at the iconic depiction of George Washington crossing the Delaware and marvel at works by European masters like Van Gogh, Monet, and Degas. Your guide will share vital facts and humorous commentary that will help you appreciate each piece all the more. Experience one of the Big Apple's premier museums in an educational and entertaining way.
