The Met NYC: Each of the 3 locations Offers its own Cultural Experience

The main building of the Metropolitan Museum of Art borders (the Met NYC) Central Park and prominently sits on Manhattan’s well-known Fifth Avenue. Spanning four city blocks, this New York City icon is a must-do for visitors to the Big Apple.

This Gothic-Revival style building isn’t the museum’s only location – visitors can also explore The Met Breuer and The Met Cloister which collectively make up the Met NYC. Each museum offers its own unique experience as well as a variety of on-site dining options to enjoy a meal or sip a favorite cocktail. As if that’s not enough to entice visitors to see all three locations there is an added incentive: one admission ticket is valid for entry to all three locations as long as the museums are visited within three consecutive days. So why not put all three locations on your NYC itinerary?
