In this video of the Metropolitan Museum of Art (the MET), I take you on a guided virtual tour of the most popular works of art on display in the museum. You'll see Egyptian, American, Medieval, European, Modern, African, Greek and Roman, and Asian art and sculptures (and some architecture). You'll see art from impressionists, renaissance, abstract, and cubism. Famous artists in their permanent collection include Pisarro, Monet, Manet, Caravaggio, Bruegel, Rembrandt, Vermeer, Rubens, El Greco, Renoir, Cezanne, Toulouse, Van Gogh, Gauguin, Braque, Matisse, and Seurat, just to name a few. Basically, they have everything. This video is a quick tour of all the highlights in the MET's permanent collection.

I studied a little Art History in college, so if you have any questions about anything you saw in the video, feel free to ask in the comments below.

Considering your constraints of time and media, you created a piece of art. The only problem for this old guy is my head was spinning and my eyes have not stopped spinning yet!

That was an incredible tour! Thanks so much for taking all that time to put all those pictures together for us... and for getting reprimanded twice, in the name of art :-)

well this is quite an effort, congrats! it's quite a ride but it gets the picture of how enormous is the museum. as a side note, your speech is not always crystal clear also because you speak quite fast, please consider lowering a bit the background music volume. keep up the good work!

I've been to the Met probably 40 or 50 times in my life and I learned something new here. This video was incredibly creative and the host is great!

Just went there last week and it’s so hard to describe how MASSIVE the museum is. As an example, many museums have one or two large main “corridors” or “atriums”, but I’m pretty sure this museum has at least 7 (I didn’t have time to visit everything on the second floor). Speaking of time, if you love museums, then the MET is a half-day or even whole day visit. I wanted to see everything and even with the 4-5 hours I spent there, I still hardly read or even closely inspected each exhibit and ended up not having enough time to visit much of the second floor. In terms of tickets, if you are a college student, or look like a college student, if you’re not feeling too guilty, go ahead and buy the student ticket for about half the price. They never even checked my Emory Univ ID or my brother’s Univ ID. We just bought the tickets and put the sticker on our chest. Last piece of advice I guess I could give is that you should go when the special exhibit that the yearly Met Gala is based from is set up (when we went, it was Heavenly Bodies: Fashion and the Catholic Imagination) in the massive central room, it adds a lot to the trip.

The other amazing feature of this tour was the ability of the commentator to keep up with the pace of this piece!!

Unfortunately, it is not pay what you wish anymore, unless you live in New York. $25 is mandatory :(. It goes against the original mission of the museum, but, there you have it.
