The Met’s collection is as impressive as it’s diverse. If you are a fan of any particular historical era or civilization, cultural theme, art style, etc., chances are that you will find many things to admire that will make your visit very worthwhile. If you are like me, and tend to love so many things, you will be frustrated by the limited amount of time a normal vacation gives you to enjoy places like these.

Wonderful and amazing Museum. For us was the most interesting the Byzants era and samurai warriors. The entry is easy, and there is no long lines because of automatic ticket machines.

The only drawback is the lack of time. It's impossible to see everything in one day, you need to be selective.
