The Metropolitan Museum of Art presents over 5,000 years of art from every corner of the world for everyone to experience and enjoy.

Skip the long lines for tickets at the door with the day pass. You’ll have priority entrance to all three museums for an entire day.

  • The Met Fifth Avenue:

The Met Fifth Avenue contains millions of works in collections from different time periods and geographical origins. The Arms and Armor Collection, Arts of Africa, Egyptian Art, the American Wing, Greek and Roman art, and Islamic Art are just some of the exhibits you can find.
