Better known as Met, the Metropolitan is one of the top rated museums in the world. It opened its doors for the first time in 1872 and has an important collection with important pieces of Egyptian art, African, Asian, Oceania, Middle East, Byzantine and Islamic. But with the permission of MOMA, the Met also has a section devoted to modern art and more than 10,000 works of art mostly European and American artists. One of its peculiarities are called Cloisters, a French cloisters medial structures that were restored and incorporated into the museum, which gives it a very genuine, with stained glass and medieval tapestries included. The collection of photographs is impresioante. The MET has more than 20,000 original of all time featuring Alfred Stieglitz, Edward Steichem, Walter Evans, Diane Arbus and the great Robert Frank, which recently gave her an impressive retrospective of the work "Americans" with contacts and unpublished photographs. Visit the museum fairly well at least we can take a whole day, and this should be done with a good guide and tour of the first rooms we are most interested in before it is completely exhausted.
