The tour also includes same-week admission to the Cloisters, the museum’s magnificent faux-medieval monastery in upper Manhattan that houses a rich collection of European art from the Middle Ages.
In 2015, the Metropolitan Museum of Art hit a record-setting year in terms of attendance with 6.3 million people turning up to see its world-renowned collection of art and priceless historical artifacts.
That means, the lines are longer than ever. Now you can avoid the inevitable hour-plus wait times with this skip-the-line ticket to the Met (as locals affectionately call it). The world-famous collection includes 17 curatorial departments that include the splendors of ancient Egypt, the spectacular American Wing, inspiring treasures from the Greek and Roman world, beloved Impressionist paintings, and the latest in contemporary art.
Bonus Museum Entry
With an admission ticket to the Met, you will also have same-week access to the Cloisters museum and gardens. Located in northern Manhattan’s Fort Tryon Park, the Cloisters is only a 30-minute subway ride from midtown. You will enjoy unparalleled views of the Hudson River, stroll through enchanting gardens, and see masterpieces of sculpture, stained glass, tapestries, and more at the branch of the Museum devoted to the art, architecture, and gardens of medieval Europe.
