Metropolitan Museum of Art (MET)

Highly recommended
The Metropolitan Museum of Art is the pride and joy of New York. Designed in 1866 according to the European model, this art gallery encased in Central Park, emerges on 5th Avenue like a temple flanked by massive columns. Its collection spans over 5,000 years of history, from Sumerian and Egyptian antiquities to Picasso, from pre-Colombian art to Vermeer, from decorative arts to fashion, without forgetting musical instruments, weapons and armor...Superlatively tasteful and educational!
