Metropolitan Museum of Art

Easily one of the best art museums in the world, with works spanning 6 continents and over 6,000 years, the Metropolitan Museum of Art is so vast you could spend days exploring it. If you don’t have days to spare, our Met Express Tour cuts to the core, taking you straight to the collection’s highlights in just 2 hours.

We’ve carefully planned an itinerary to show you a broad spectrum of art, sculptures, jewels, artifacts, and even architecture. Traveling in small groups of 15 people or fewer, with an expert guide, you’ll traverse the globe without leaving Central Park.

Our tour starts in Ancient Egypt, beholding perfectly preserved ancient Egyptian tomb models. See tiny dioramas that show what life was like in the times of Tutankhamen and learn about the fascinating burial rituals of the era. You’ll understand a little more of this at our next stop to see Egyptian mummies and William, the Met’s mascot. Next, onto a prize jewel of the Met Museum, the Temple of Dendur, an Ancient Egyptian Temple right smack in the middle of Central Park.

Next we'll see the armor of Britain’s infamous King Henry VIII, and the Antioch Chalice, purported by some as, ‘The Holy Grail.”

We’ll see more ancient works of Greek statuary and Roman frescoes before moving to the exotic, with a stop in Papua New Guinea. The Met houses a number of beautifully carved Bisj poles, collected by a Rockefeller – at the cost of his life. We’ll then head to the second floor to soak in some of Claude Monet’s famous Water Lillies, be energized by the expressive works of Vincent Van Gogh, and be inspired by a bronze of Rodin’s Thinker.

Our tour ends with an ascent to the rooftop garden (May–Oct only, weather permitting), to enjoy one of our favorite views of New York City. You’ll gaze across the green of Central Park, framed by the city skyline. At the conclusion of the tour, you’re welcome to linger on the rooftop and enjoy a snack or drink from the garden café, happy in the knowledge that you’ve seen the best of the Met in just 2 hours.

Special Notes
  • Tour offered in English Only.
  • The Met rooftop is closed during the winter from November through April and reopens from early May through the end of October, weather permitting.
  • Please arrive 15 minutes before scheduled departure.
  • A coat and bag check is available during the colder months. If you would like to check something, allow a little extra time before and after the tour to do so.
  • All of the pieces listed in the tour description are able for viewing the vast majority of the time. However, the MET, like nearly all great museums, occasionally allows certain works to travel in temporary exhibitions or be lent to other institutions. The MET also allows private parties to book out certain rooms for events (most commonly the Temple of Dendur), rendering them inaccessible for the duration of the event. If one of the listed pieces is unable to be viewed, the guide, at their discretion, will substitute another piece of important value.
  • Non-flash photography is allowed. However, flash photography and video cameras cannot be used inside the Museum. Selfie sticks are also prohibited.
  • The museum is fully wheelchair accessible. However, if you cannot climb the stairs of the central entrance to reach the meeting point, there is a ground level entrance one block south, near the intersection of 81st street and 5th avenue. Tell the desk you need to use the elevator to meet a group in the main lobby (at pharaoh statue), which will then secure your entrance ticket. They will provide you with a temporary pass and help direct you upstairs.
  • Food and drink cannot be brought into the Museum and may not be checked at the coat checks. However, water in plastic bottles are permitted.
  • In warm weather, dress light, wear sunblock, and bring comfortable shoes. In autumn and winter, wear layered clothing to ensure comfort in colder temperatures.
  • To protect your own property, please carry all valuable items on your person at all times. Do not leave any valuable items on the bus or at the hotel, attraction, restaurant, etc. Tours4fun, local operators, drivers and tour guides are not responsible for any loss or theft at any location.

    The tour was really excellent

    The tour was excellent. My 20 year old niece is an artist and was in "art heaven" during this tour. Our guide was extremely knowledgeable and really helped us see more of the museum than we would have seen on our own.
