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

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.

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.

The Met truly is the kind of museum that inspires on every visit. Have a great time! (And you may want to check out GREAT MUSEUMS' other programs on the Met - An Acquiring Mind and West Meets East.

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

@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!

I wish I had the money to travel there and be marveled by such beautiful pieces of art.... perhaps one day.

@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!

The gift of art is truly invaluable!!! Recently, I went into this house of art and couldn't believe my eyes. I discovered so many masterpieces! Thank you so much for this amazing video.

the NYMA should do an exhibit on the "deconstruction of Western civilization" it's taken 2200 years to make it this far and it will only take one generation to destroy it

@daltonagre That's terrific - we're glad that you were able to see it. Great Museums has also produced programs about the Met's Chinese collection and about the acquisition strategy of the previous director, Philippe de Montebello, both of which you may enjoy on YouTube.
