Description

Discover the MET, one of the world's largest museums, with an expert tour guide!

In a small group of up to 15 people, your guide will help you to discover works of art from every continent, particularly relics and mummies of Ancient Egypt, Greek and Roman heritage, and incredible works of art from Claude Monet, Vincent Van Gogh and Auguste Rodin.

If you choose the full tour of the MET, you will then carry on to see the portraits by Rembrandt and Vermeer. After a tour of the Italian, Spanish and French works of art, you'll have the chance to gaze upon the incredible Washington Crossing the Delaware by German painter Emanuel Leutze. 

During your guided tour of the MET, you will explore the whole world without even leaving Central Park!

  • Bonne .Commentaire : pas de guide en langue Française et accès aux écouteurs une seule personne au Guichet avec une file d'attente impressionnante

  • Très bonne expérience que de visiter un si grand musée avec un guide expérimenté. Bon parcours et bonnes infos sur ce que nous avons vu. Cela permet de voir un maximum d'oeuvres intéressantes en un minimum de temps. Pas de souci d'étude de plan. Notre guide, Ryan, était très dévoué, nous avons passé quasiment 4h avec lui (au lieu de 3). Visite orientée art, histoire de l'art, évidemment. Et visite quasi privative car nous n'étions que 5 (france, usa, italie), des personnes très agréables qui plus est ! Il manquerait juste peut-être des écouteurs reliés à un micro pour le guide en cas de forte affluence. Vous pouvez prévoir de manger un bout ensuite (à l'american wing café pour nous), et visiter des pièces non vues pendant le tour guidé. A recommander.
