Met Museum Extended Tour: Because the Met Museum is nothing like you expected, neither is our tour. Combining 5,000 years of art, we’ll transport you from Central Park to Papua New Guinea, Ancient Rome and Renaissance Italy. Our Metropolitan Museum of Art tours combine the best of the collection into a well-planned route.
You’ll easily understand ancient Egyptian art along with Renaissance masterpieces, while also seeing big-name draws like the Temple of Dendur and Washington Crossing the Delaware. With small groups of 15 people or fewer, your Met Museum tour will be intimate, your expert guide easy to interact with. A good thing too, since they’re passionate about art history and about sharing that love with you, through a fun and interactive experience.

Selfie sticks are also prohibited. All of pieces listed in the tour description are viewable the vast mayority of the time. However, the MET occasionally allows certain workes to travel in temporary exhibitions or be lent to other institutions.

If one of the listed pieces is unable to be viewed, the guide, at their discretion will substitute another piece of important value.
