Why take this tour?

For those with an interest in art or history, our Met tours are not to be missed. Meet the Met takes you on a comprehensive tour of the Metropolitan Museum of Art's collection; from Ancient Egypt to Modern America in just over 3 hours.

Centuries of art from across the world

With your expert guide, you'll traverse not just the best of the Met, but the history of art and civilization too. You'll see the Temple of Dendur, transplanted here from Egypt; appreciate Impressionist artworks by masters like Monet; learn about Ancient Egyptian burial rites at a fully-intact tomb; and visit an Ancient Roman bedroom that survived the eruption of Mt. Vesuvius in 79AD, which destroyed the city of Pompeii.

We'll get closer to home with 'Washington Crossing the Delaware', one of the most recognizable artworks in the US; and visit a breathtaking collection from New Guinea, where you'll hear the story of the adventurous Michael Rockefeller and learn the shocking story behind his mysterious disappearance.

A world-class collection, deconstructed

New York's Metropolitan Museum of Art is home to perhaps the world's most comprehensive art collection. The museum was created by a group of citizens whose mission was to open up a world of art to all Americans, with the firm belief that incredible art would open minds and doors for all those who visited. With that intention in mind and the slogan 'One Met, Many Worlds' the museum has collected works from across the globe, by world-famous artists such as Raphael, Van Gogh, Rembrandt, Picasso and Vermeer.

Spread across 2 million sq. ft. (that's 31 football fields!) this massive collection can be a little intimidating – but not when you walk with us. We've carefully crafted a route through the best rooms, across 5,000 years and five continents, so you meet the Met in the most manageable, understandable way.

Intimate, relaxed, educational and fun

By limiting our group sizes to only 15 people or fewer we've ensured that your experience will be relaxed and informal, your guide easy to interact with. So our Met Museum tours are more like time spent with friends than a lecture.

With pre-arranged Met Museum tickets including a donation, you'll skip general entry ticket lines. Meanwhile our team of expert guides – passionate about the history and art of the Met, and about sharing that with you – are the perfect hosts.

Join us on a fun, interactive journey through the many worlds of the Met, for a museum experience quite unlike any other.

Jeffery took my husband and I on a fabulous tour of the Met Art Museum and thank goodness he was our guide. He showed us artifacts and items that we would never have found on our own. We both thoroughly enjoyed the experience and would recommend this tour to anyone

Our tour was wonderful! I wish we could have spent the whole day in the in museum with our guide. I believe her name was Samonia. She was from Rome and had an immense knowledge and passion for art history. I honestly count have asked for a better experience. Thank you!

Stephane was an excelent guide. First of all, he was very understanding about us beeing late, waited for us and didn't make any problem about it. He also answered all our questions and was very knowledgable. Besides that, he was very patient because my wife needed me to translate a little bit to spanish when she didn't get something, and he waited and even motivated me to do so when he saw that she was lost.
Jason was incredibly informed and delivered the information with enough zest to make me interested in broken statues and a lamp stand. He took the effort to learn something about each of us and really made the tour feel like a walk through time instead of a lecture. I loved that we only had about 8 people on the tour. I would definitely take this tour again next time I am in NYC.
Excellent tour! We had a great time!
Well worth the time and money.

Thank you Simona for making the museum tour relevant. I like the phone contact when we missed the start time. I want to have her around again when we visit NYC.
The guide was fantastic. She was extremely knowledgeable and tailored the tour to meet our interests. I would recommend it to everyone. Debbie
Our guide was exceptional. She was knowledgeable, tailored the visit to our interests, and engaging. I don't think I have ever enjoyed a museum experience more. I'm trying to recommend this tour to friends.
We so enjoyed every minute of our tour with Ryan. He introduced us to art that normally we would just pass by. Everything about the tour was well organized. I just can't say enough. It was a great price as well. We will use your service whenever possible. Thank you for offering this!
We loved simona and the walk she gave us. She's a great teacher and a kind patient tour leader
This was my first day in New York and to have such a wonderful guide to show and explain so much about such a huge museum was amazing. I would thoroughly recommend this tour.
It was a wonderful overview of the Met. We had limited time so this was an excellent way for us to get a feeling of the scope of this iconic museum.
Jeffrey was entertaining and knowledgeable. I was glad we purchased a tour because we learned more and saw the best of the best. The MET was our favorite stop in NYC! We stayed longer to check out more of the museum and felt we needed a few more hours beyond that. I will definitely go back the next time I am in New York.
Simona was wonderful! I got really lucky and had a one-on-one tour with her. I seriously could have listened to her talk about art all day.
Excellent tour - informative and fun
Simona was great, we couldnt be happier. She managed to teach us so many things, ans it was so pleasant to listen to her!
