MET Doors

New York City has soooo many sights to visit. And there are just sooooo many things to do here. But, I guess I’m a creature of habit. The Metropolitan Museum of Art is one of my favourite places to visit when I’m in NYC. 

The MET is the largest museum in the United States and one of the most visited in the world. I’ve been here several times but have not seen the same exhibits twice. 

Here are a few of the doors I walked through in this most magnificent building on my most recent visit. 

Going up ….

And down.

This column is just a portion of one from the Temple of Artimis and is part of the Greek and Roman Sculpture Exhibition. 

This exhibition was a fine prelude to the special installation which is on the rooftop. But more about that in a future post.   For now we are looking at doors … and doorways.

    I love the Met too! I need to visit again soon. Great door shots – especially the third one – the stairs illuminated blue and golden leading you up to that huge painting inside. Thanks!

    Thanks for the brief tour. I’ve never been to the Met and I think this is the first time I’ve actually seen photos from the inside. Cool. Someday I may have to visit!

      Oh yes!! Add it to your list of places to visit. I can’t seem to get enough. Admission is what you’d like to pay – minimum $1. So, it’s an affordable venue. But the real cost is in your time. As I said I’ve visited several times over the past few years – maybe 4 or 5 times l, 2-3 hours/ visit – and I have yet to see the same space twice. So, allow for plenty of time. You won’t regret it.

    Fabulous! I didn’t get to see the Met when I was there — definitely on the to-see list! 🙂

      Yes indeed! Put it on your list. And give it lots of space.

      It’s pretty spectacular!! Worth a visit ( or two … or three) when visiting NYC. It’s so large! AND! Oh my!! Sooooo many doors!

    I love this museum. I haven’t been in about 10 years. I think it’s time to step back inside.
