  • Rating: 5 “Easy booking, no additional fees!”

    Reviewed by Tricia from Oxford, United States on November 12th, 2013 I found this booking site on TripAdvisor just two days prior to leaving for NYC. It was great! I was able to book with no additional booking fees (only the regular cost of the museum tickets), and I was able to print my tickets from home. Thanks!

  • Rating: 5 “Must go to Metropolitan Museum”

    Reviewed by a GetYourGuide Customer from Bergen, Norway on September 5th, 2013 Museums this amazing are not found in Norway (or even Europe, I do not imagine). A visit to New York City is wasted without going to the Metropolitan Museum of Art.

  • Rating: 4 “Met: best museum in NYC”

    Reviewed by a GetYourGuide Customer from Austin, United States on August 2nd, 2013 When I was in New York I went to MoMA and I went to the Met and I wish I'd skipped the first and instead spent that time at the Met. The variety is far greater, from historical artefacts to the Dyson vacuum cleaner and everything in between. Very crowded as you'd expect

  • Rating: 4 “Phenomenal museum”

    Reviewed by a GetYourGuide Customer from Seattle, United States on April 12th, 2013 I got lost in the Met, it's so huge and there is SO much to see, as far as museums go, they dont get much better than this. Glad to skip the lines, but one day isn't enough
