Metropolitan Museum of Art
1000 Fifth Ave.
Accommodates some of the greatest cultural treasures in the world, representing every category of art from just about every country from every time period from the Stone Age to the present. It houses the finest American art in the world, as well as an impressive collection of European, Greco-Roman, and Ancient Egyptian art. The Egyptian Art gallery includes a whole temple that was shipped to America as a gift. Going to the Metropolitan Museum of Art is (at least) a full-day affair, and an essential part of any trip to New York.
