Take the Tour!

Our guide Matt was friendly and knowledgeable about the museum and the art within it. My wife and I took a private tour which allowed us the flexibility to go at our own pace and gave Matt the flexibility to customize the tour to our specific areas of interest. I recommend you take advantage of this tour as there no way to see all of the museum. Also do not be shy about letting your guide when you are ready to proceed to the next exhibit. Matt was very accommodating to our interests and pace.

I liked being shown parts of the Met I usually avoid. Great insights into the American Wing and Lehman Collection. Now I have reasons to go back and go deeper

Our guide Robin was amazing. She was so informative. She pointed out how the artist’s work changed over time and how they were influenced. We also got to see all the important works and hear about New York and the Met. It was fantastic.

Katherine, our tour guide, was wonderful. She was very knowledgeable and we enjoyed touring the museum with her. She pointed out things and told us background stories we wouldn't have other wise seen or known. Highly recommend her!

MET was fun!

Robin did a fantastic job - her knowledge of the museum and artists was amazing. It was a bit overwhelming seeing so much of the property in such a short amount of time. But the tour serves as a great way to get the lay of the land and then follow up with what really interests you.

This is a good tour to take when visiting the MET.. Our guide James was fantastic. He obviously knows the museum like the back of his hand. We learned a lot from him that day. Things from both the history books and the pages of VF. We hope all guides and companies operated their tours this way.
