Culture: A Visit To The Metropolitan Museum Of Art, New York City

(Drivebycuriosity) - Large cities offer many things to do. The museums you could find there are an important part of these delights.

Yesterday my wife, some friends and I visited the Metropolitan Museum of Art in Manhattan (metmuseum). This is a huge palace which contains a lot of impressive collections, a reflection of the enormous wealth which is accumulated in New York City. 

The entry fee is optional - my wife and I spend just 2 bucks. The very limited costs are an invitation to pick just a part of the ample selections and to come more often for other exhibitions.

Yesterday we focused on their nice collection of European Masters. We enjoyed the work of Gustave Courbet, Henry Lerolle, William Bouguereau, Caspar David Friedrich and many more.

The museum wasn´t crowded, another advantage of the summer time, which gives free access to the paintings.

A visit there is highly recommended.
