Treasures of the MET
Question – where can you find over 5,000 years of art from around the globe?
Answer – New York City’s own Metropolitan Museum of Art!
While we admit that is a lot of art to take in – especially if you’re short on time – we also have a solution! With Beyond Times Square’s Treasures of the MET tour visitors will be introduced to the Met’s most important works in its permanent collection such as the outstanding collection of Impressionist and Post-Impressionist paintings – including works by Van Gogh, Monet, Renoir and Degas, the inspiring American Wing featuring the iconic painting of Washington Crossing the Delaware, spectacular examples of Tiffany stained glass, the extraordinary sculpture of the ancient Greeks, the world of Ancient Egypt including the Temple of Dendur and much, much more!
