What people are saying about Metropolitan Museum of Art
We had a similar pass for San Francisco last summer. It's so nice to have options and to be able to skip lines. The hint to go to the Rose Center entrance of the American Museum of Natural History was outstanding! Long lines due to the holidays and a Kwanza celebration but walked right in the side entrance.
Wonderful tour, the host Ally was a lovely girl with a very upbeat personality which made the tour a lot of fun!! It was very informative and fab for seeing the filming locations in the programme and also other parts of Manhattan that I wouldn’t necessarily have gotten to see!! Defo recommend them tour!!
Buddy did an amazing job. His overall knowledge was great. He was very interactive and explained many of the highlights in and around the park fro historical to movies. I would recommend highly!! Hey Buddy your travelers from Buffalo!! ☺
Provided you with great information in an entertaining way. The guides were informative well beyond the scope of telling what it was. I enjoy the historical perspective with a touch of humour added.
Wonderful museum. Reminds me of the Louvre. We only made it through the first floor of the museum. We will definitely be going back again the next time we are in New York.
