New York: The Met Museum
One of the other sites that I really wanted to visit whilst in New York was the Metropolitan Museum of art.
I will admit this was mainly from watching Gossip Girl over and over and wanting to get a picture on the steps of the met.
Once we arrived there the building was magnificent! It's just a donation to get a ticket and inside it is absolutely massive, like a maze.
The section we browsed around was on the Egyptians there were so many artefacts! Mummies, sarcophaguses, Egyptian jewellery and even a temple.
Everything on display seemed so grand and magnificent and they had a wonderful room where one wall was basically just a window, then there was a water feature. It was blocked off here I think they were setting it up for a wedding reception.
I imagine it would make a stunning venue!
Unfortunately as all we had done that day was walk round everybody was overly tired by the time we got to the met. Which meant we only went round the section with artefacts from Ancient Egypt and then went back to the hotel.
I would love to go back and peruse some of the other exhibits, I don't think you'd get round all of it even if you spent a whole day in there!
I've included some of the photos I snapped above and below. This includes the mandatory picture on the steps of the met Gossip Girl style.
Have you visited the met Museum or New York in general? What did you enjoy the most?
Thanks for Reading!
