I wonder how someone is able to paint such fine detail without messing up! Truly impressive!

Biggest regret of my life was giving myself 2 hours to tour the museum. I knew it was famous and iconic but never imagined it's magnitude. I want to go back and spend the whole day there. That still wouldn't be enough. Absolutely amazing.

I feel so lucky to live fairly close to New York; I've been able to visit the Met a number of times and continue to go

I wish this documentary would talk more about the art instead of constantly saying how great the museum is. Would definitely like to visit there though if I ever end up in NYC.

@sybylo Your Sundays must be divine indeed, although I couldn't find this collection at your channel. You may also enjoy GREAT MUSEUMS' An Acquiring Mind (about previous Director Philippe de Montebello's acquisition process) and West Meets East (about the Chinese galleries of the Met). Thanks for your comment and see you at the Met!

That's great! Yes, starting at 46:20, you can see the Met's Oceanic art, including much of that collected by Nelson and Michael Rockefeller. We hope you enjoy.

@Serenityeverlasting We hope you're able to go. The lines are over an hour long for the Alexander McQueen exhibit but the exhibit is well worth it! Enjoy the entire museum!

who'd of thought,
that the curators sport
the finest comb over
that delusion can offer
and the blatantly bald proffer
