Metropolitan Museum of Art (MET)

Highly recommended
The Metropolitan Museum of Art is New York's pride and joy. Designed in 1870 according to the European model and set in Central Park, it stands out on Fifth Avenue like a temple flanked by massive columns. Art from A-Z is covered in this collection spanning Sumerian and Egyptian antiquities to Picasso, from pre-Colombian art to Vermeer, from decorative arts to fashion, without forgetting musical instruments, weapons and armour... Superlatively tasteful in a clever and educational environment.
