Extended Met: Metropolitan Museum of Art in 3 Hours

What to expect
  • See the best of the Metropolitan Museum of Art on a quick, three-hour guided walking tour
  • Explore major highlights of the collection - and some fascinating less-visited pieces
  • Find your favorite piece of art in the over two million square feet of museum
  • Visit the Met rooftop garden for spectacular views over Central Park (May-October only, weather permitting)
In a museum as big as the Metropolitan Museum of Art, there's something for everyone!

Start your tour in the ancient world, with a visit to Ancient Egyptian tomb models. Incredibly well preserved, these pieces were a more important discovery than they seem, as they offered pictorial insight into what life in Ancient Egypt was like. This insight continues at the incredible Temple of Dendur, fully intact and surreally displayed inside a naturally lit atrium, nestled in Central Park.

Your world returns to New York for stained glass by Tiffany and then hops over to Britain to size up the armor of notorious King Henry VIII. Head east for the Antioch Chalice, believed by some to be the Holy Grail itself, the cup from which Jesus drank on the night he was betrayed. Believe the story? You’ll have time to debate its merits with your expert guide.

For historians our next few stops are a true delight – the Greek and Roman wing contain elegant statues, imperial Roman busts, and intact frescos buried along with those at Pompeii.

Note: Gratuities to guides are appreciated but never obligatory.
