Fully immerse yourself in the world of art with this comprehensive walking tour of the MET. You'll join an enthusiastic art-loving guide for a day of fascinating cultural immersion.
The MET is one of New York’s most famous museums, housing over 2 million works of art from every corner of the world. You'll be in a small group, so you can enjoy the feel of a private tour while meeting fellow art lovers. Your guide will take you on a specially-curated route through 5,000 years of art history. At each highlight, your guide will offer insight into the history of each piece, its significance, and any fun facts about the artist.
You’ll wander through the Ancient Egyptian Galleries and see pieces crafted centuries upon centuries ago. Witness some of the earliest examples of human artistry and visual storytelling. Explore the famous Temple of Dendur, the Tomb of Perneb, and stone tablets with hieroglyphs. From there you’ll meet the works of Vincent Van Gogh, the sculptures of Rodin, Picasso, Degas, and Monet. Explore one of the greatest natural disasters in Human history with a tour of the Ancient Pompeii Room. Wander between spectacular marble creations in the Sculpture Gallery. If the season’s right, you'll even pay a visit to the MET rooftop for views of the surrounding city. These works of art need to be seen to be fully appreciated, as you can examine every brushstroke made by these masters.
This 3-hour tour takes you around the world and back again in no time at all! You'll have plenty of time for you to linger at the pieces that really strike you, asking whatever questions pop into your head. Your guide will help you develop a deeper appreciation for art and its place in Human culture and civilization. Capture photos of your favorite pieces and selfies in front of the awe-inspiring statues. End your day with a group photo to commemorate your artistic adventure!
