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.
