In 2015, the Metropolitan Museum of Art hit a record-setting year in terms of attendance with 6.3 million people turning up to see its world-renowned collection of art and priceless historical artifacts.

That means, the lines are longer than ever. Now you can avoid the inevitable hour-plus wait times with this skip-the-line ticket to The Met. The world-famous collection includes 17 curatorial departments that include the splendors of ancient Egypt, the spectacular American Wing, inspiring treasures from the Greek and Roman world, beloved Impressionist paintings, and the latest in contemporary art.

Bonus Museum Entry

Located 8 blocks away, explore contemporary art through the global breadth and historical reach of The Met's unparalleled collection at The Met Breuer.

One of the best museums I've been to. Compares to the British Museum, the Cairo Museum and the museums in the capital. Can be very crowded but on the Sunday it was really reasonable. Skip the line access is the way to go.
