TREASURES OF THE WORLD

The Met is far more than a collection of paintings — which only take up about 1/4 of the Met.

It's got giant sculptures, countless theme rooms, and cool, sometimes bizarre, artifacts of 5,000 years of civilization.

IT'S LIKE TOURING THE WORLD WITHOUT LEAVING NEW YORK CITY.

Among the Met's treasures you will see along the way are . . .
