AOL Travel Editor’s Review

Two million art objects. Five million visitors per year. Thirty special exhibitions per year. Two million square feet of space. Seventeen curatorial departments. And over 1,800 employees. Welcome to the Met, one of the largest, most reputable, and most eclectic cultural institutions on earth and one of the top New York City attractions. The permanent collection contains many household names and works of art, including works by Rembrandt, Van Gogh, El Greco, Raphael, Breugel, as well as wings dedicated to Islamic, Egyptian, Asian, and Greek art. It’s enough to take up a day or two if you want to see it all. So plan ahead so you can see what you want to see and then skip the wings that don’t interest you. As if the vast collection was not enough, the gorgeous Beaux-Arts building housing this huge collection is a site in itself. You haven’t really visited New York until you’ve lounged on the front steps licking an ice cream cone.
