I'm so lucky that I had the chance of havin Katie as my guide I wish I would have the chance to take another tour with her...like a food tour I will still be in NY until Friday

Thank you for a great tour!

Kevin was amazing! For 3 hours we were mesmerised as he brought to life a fascinating range of objects and artworks held in the museum. He has a great ability to make things both understandable and enjoyable, and he made our group feel very welcome. Doing this tour is a great way to engage with the displays, and at the end of the tour you are free to spend the rest of the day in the museum. I would highly recommend it.

Katie is a gem. She is so professional, funny and lovable! She brought the art to life and went above and beyond walking everyone where they needed to be at the end of the tour.

Morgan we terrific! However, I wish there were another tour that covered other parts of the Met that there isn't time to get to.

FAQs

Am I guaranteed to see all of the rooms and artworks listed?
All of the pieces listed in the tour description are viewable 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.
Is the rooftop garden visitable all year?
Unfortunately not. The rooftop garden is only open from May through October, weather permitting. On other months your Met tour will include extra artworks instead, spending more time inside the Museum.
I use a wheelchair; can I take this tour?
Yes! The Met 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.
Can I take photos in the Metropolitan Museum of Art?
Non-flash photography is allowed. However, flash photography and video cameras cannot be used inside the Museum. Selfie sticks are also prohibited.
