Insider’s Guide to The Metropolitan Museum of Art

Expand your horizons with an enlightening trip to “the Met,” the largest art museum in the United States. Whether you are a frequent visitor or it’s your first time, there is always something new to see.

The Greek and Roman Sculpture Court is an optimal place to start. Find your own intimate corner and take in the two-story hall filled with the museum’s prolific collection of Greek and Roman art focusing on ancient statues. Next, immerse yourself in an Impressionist Treasury to explore 19th century and 20th-century European paintings and sculptures featuring 16 works by Post-Impressionist painter Vincent Van Gogh. Finally, round out your adventures by visiting the Temple of Dendur, the only complete Egyptian temple in the Western Hemisphere. Take note of the stunning papyrus and lotus plant details towards the base leading up towards the sun and the wings of Horus, the sky god. Most importantly, get lost, wander the galleries, and remember there will always be more to see. That’s the beauty of The Metropolitan Museum of Art.

Celebrate An (Inter)Stellar Spring

Even if New York City does get hit by a late-season snowfall, indoors, you can embrace the promise of a sweet-smelling spring at Macy’s annual Flower Show. This year, the sprawling 11-story flagship department store takes us on a “Journey to Paradisios,” an out-of-this-world, flower-filled reverie into “the mystery of the cosmos.” 

Think arrangement after stunning arrangement in every size, shape, and shade in the galaxy. While you’re there, you can also get a jump start on your spring wardrobe essentials, check out the latest gear at the new Apple Shop on the first floor or grab a bite at one of four NYC food trucks that have permanently parked on “Chef Street.”

The Macy’s Flower Show is on view March 24 - April 7, 2019, and is free and open to the public during normal shopping hours.
