Occupying an 11.5 acre footprint, the Metropolitan Museum of Art (New York, NY’s biggest museum), which opened in 1880, is impressive in terms both of quality and scale. However, this iconic New York attraction—one of the world's top art museums—is surprisingly easy to negotiate, particularly if you come early on a weekday to avoid the crowds. Hang out in an Egyptian temple, gawk at period costumes and take pictures on the gorgeous rooftop garden, showcasing views of Central Park and the city skyline.
