It’s easy to lose yourself in The Metropolitan Museum of Art. The building is enormous and houses an endless amount of art from various times in history and different cultures, as well. Each time I visit the museum, I find something new to see and can never seem to run out of exhibits to explore. It’s a peaceful museum. Everyone’s voices are hushed as if not to disturb the art around us. Eyes are filled with awe at the sight of ancient relics, and languages from all around the world flow around you as you wander each room.
This museum is a worldwide phenomenon that I believe everyone should visit at least once in their lifetime. It has something for everyone: Roman statues, ancient Egyptian sarcophaguses, modern paintings, Van Gogh pieces, and Samurai armor. Each collection is awe-inspiring and is sure to leave you struck by all the history that is placed in one building in NYC.
