    Residence in Airbnb, New York, is very close to the Metropolitan Museum of Art. It's 200 meters away. It's rainy and rainy to visit the world famous museum. The 62-year-old UnionPay Card got free tickets smoothly (the event was found accidentally on the official website of UnionPay). First, I went to the store and bought a museum album. MET is too big. I can't finish it in a day. I can only choose the most important ones according to Tusuoji. First go to the oil painting gallery, MET collection of oil paintings, the works of famous artists are very many, fine taste, a whole day is not enough. From a selective point of view, the first choice is impressionism. The works of Van Gogh, Monet, Gauguin and other famous painters make people linger and forget to return. There are also many good things in the Chinese Pavilion. Song Huizong's flowers and birds, Mifu's calligraphy, Ming Dynasty furniture and Suzhou gardens, all of which were customized from Suzhou and then assembled in New York. It was not long before the founding of the People's Republic. Egypt is rich in collections, and there is also a temple similar to the garden in Suzhou, but because of having been to Egypt, the attraction is not very strong, rushed past. In addition, MET's weapons museum is also worth seeing. Tired and sunny, I climbed to the roof garden on the fifth floor of the museum for dinner. The roof garden opens every spring until autumn. It will be closed after October. There's a coffee bar in the garden with snacks and drinks. While eating, you can see the skyline of New York and the Central Park, which is separated by a wall. The Museum closes from Sunday to Thursday at 5:30 p.m. and opens back to 9 p.m. on Friday and Saturday, so try to visit it on weekends if the time is right.

    At the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York, Metropolitan Museum of Art has an irresistible magnetism for me. The encyclopedic museum is dazzling. One day can only be spent on horseback. You'll find that an Egyptian Pavilion may turn people upside down. It takes more than three days for people to love art. This is the third time I've been here. Instead of being hit by the metropolis for the first time in 2008, I've gotten rid of the jujube. Instead, I have a clear goal and follow my own interests. Back to the starting point of falling in love with museums, the excitement brought by the metropolis is still the same. The difference is that art knowledge grows and enjoys it more. The Egyptian Pavilion goes straight to the Penneb Tomb, and then to the Baodanduo Temple in the town hall. The story behind the relics is interesting, "Let the Mummies Dance "This book details how to bring the temple into the metropolis. It was not stolen by the Americans, but by the Egyptian government, in order to thank the United States for its contribution to the rescue of Egyptian cultural relics, the Temple of Dandor was given as a gift to the United States government. Americans packed the temple in 640 containers and shipped it to the United States. The China Pavilion is the Metropolitan Special Exhibition "China: Mirror Flowers and Moons" this year, with renowned director Wang Jiawei as art director. The exhibition was unexpectedly well distributed and enjoyed no less popularity than the Egyptian Pavilion. Old photos and new fashion deductions of Chinese style dresses, Chinese cultural objects and dresses juxtaposed. Guo Pei's golden dress was placed in the Chinese Buddha Statue Showroom, which is as beautiful as the dresses of other masters. Unfortunately, because of the special exhibition in China, the exhibits collected by the metropolis itself can not be seen. The Japanese Pavilion showcases me. The exhibition is very Zen and has beautiful vision. Visitors can't help but slow down and enjoy it. In the collection of Western paintings, there is a huge amount. I went straight to my beloved Impressionism, where Monet's paintings are displayed in two halls. In the special exhibition of Van Gogh - "Iris and Roses" there are four paintings with the theme of iris and roses in full bloom in spring, all of which were made before Van Gogh was leaving St. Remy's Psychiatric Hospital. After the death of the artist, this series of works went to art galleries in Amsterdam, Washington and New York. But it can not be photographed, elegant and beautiful, without the slightest mania, is the heart of the actual very pure portrayal of Van Gogh. Golden objects in the South American Pavilion once again kept my footsteps. That's interesting. Little can be known about South American culture, ignorant, but interest has been aroused to go to the ancient Roman Greek Museum and Western sculpture Museum, has been physically exhausted. This is the starting point of falling in love with museums. It is by no means an old, musty and tasteless place. It is a world-class museum full of American vitality and dancing mummies. Metropolitan is the recommended ticket. I gave five dollars. There are free bags at the door.

    Why don't you visit the Metropolitan Museum of Art, one of the three largest museums in the world, when you come to New York? The collection here is famous all over the world and can be seen today. I have long heard that tickets are the nature of donation, giving more to less to all see the individual, of course, here to promote more to the good, the museum can be seen everywhere slogan is to give life to art. When entering the gate, open the bag and show it to the security staff to make sure there is no dangerous goods. Then turn right to the ticketing area. I refer to the donation amount of the previous tourists. My family of four donated $20, not less. Some donated $1, and the conductor didn't think so. It was more or less heartfelt. There are many collections in the library. There are three stories in it. We can rent voice guide. Each person has 7 stories. We don't have much time. We just want to take a look at them. So we don't rent them. However, if there are Chinese maps in the library, we should go to the counter in the middle of the hall to get them. It's very convenient outside the counter. The closing time is 5,30, but in fact the closing time is 5:10, so we only have three hours to see. With this limited time, we have seen ancient Egypt, ancient Greece, medieval Europe, modern times, ancient Africa and ancient Asia (mainly Chinese relics, a small part of Japan, India), the United States and the weapons exhibition area, and so on. Look now and then. Every time you look at an area, it is shocked. In ancient Greece, there are two giant temple doors, which are displayed beside a fountain pool. It looks like a leisure area. The huge visual impact makes people feel the depth of history and art. The whole dome of an Indian temple in the Asian exhibition area is suspended from the ceiling, and the arch and radian of the roof correspond to it. It seems that it has been built there all along. A huge mural unearthed in Shanxi Province of the Yuan Dynasty occupies the area of almost one wall of the exhibition hall. The thickness of the mural can be estimated by how much the looters spent on it from China at that time. It's shipped to the United States. Unfortunately, unfortunately, lamentation, so many precious cultural relics have been plundered from different countries and regions to the United States, and are magnificently displayed to the people of the world. It is very sad that this is the universal values of the past dynasties in the world, power politics...

    At the beginning of 62, UnionPay Card is free to exchange tickets. I spent a whole day in MET. This is a very large museum collection. The Chinese Museum has precious versions of calligraphy and painting. The Suzhou gardens in the Museum are very lifelike. It makes you feel that you are not in the Museum. The collection of Egyptian Museum is so many that there are many mummies without friends. The Egyptian Museum has not seen so many treasures, and there are so many fine oil paintings. The 5th floor Sky Garden opened in spring is perfect. It's not enough to have a day to play. You need three days to see it all.

    The collection and art gathering place, a day really can not go down. We are our own past. There are many policies for admission tickets in the library. If you buy tickets on ATM machines, the adult ticket is $25 and the student ticket is $12. It can be effective for three days. If you are a local or a student, there is a donation to collect tickets. Go to the service desk and give me some money at will, and you'll get the tickets. When my relatives were reading, they gave me a quarter and got tickets. We still buy the original price tickets, not to take advantage of small gains, but also a donation nature, so that the museum can run better. When you get the ticket, you can visit it by taking off the date part marked on the ticket and pasting it on your body. Be sure to get a guide map when you enter the door. Rotate the guide map 180 degrees during the specific journey, so it looks convenient. Then I will exert my strength and watch it for a while.

    When we came to the Metropolitan Museum, the special exhibition of "China: Mirror Flowers and Moons" was on display within the time limit. Beautiful and exquisite clothes are the perfect combination of Chinese style and fashion. With the visual impact of mirrors and water, people can't catch their eyes. The Metropolitan Museum of Art is the most popular attraction in New York City. It has more than 2 million works of art spanning 5000 years of culture, from ancient Egyptian treasures to new American exhibition halls, reflecting the creation of human beings around the world. More than 30 special exhibitions are held every year, all of which are free of charge. While drinking, enjoy the spectacular skyline in the roof garden (May-October). Or maybe it's a pleasure to go to the Metropolitan Museum of Art parties on Friday and Saturday (with balcony bars and live music) and stay open until 9 p.m. Many people feel that the tickets to the Metropolitan Museum of Art are expensive, and adults need $25. But this "25 dollars" is a suggested price, not a mandatory one. In fact, donation is used to visit the Metropolitan Museum of Art. That is to say, more donations and less donations are decided by tourists themselves. Personally, although the Metropolitan Museum of Art looks good, the $25 recommended fare is indeed a little expensive. You know, the British Museum is open to all visitors free of charge. Many people suggest that a person (not a group of people) should be given at least five dollars, which would be stingy.

    The Metropolitan Museum of Art is one of the three major museums in the world. The other two are the Louvre Museum and the British Museum. This museum was built by the people in the early days. The collection of treasures from all over the world. The most abundant venues and favorite venues are the Egyptian Museum, then the Middle East Museum, the Southeast Asia Museum and the Weapons Museum. Because the credit card of UnionPay can be shown directly without tickets, and can be dealt with in the central consultation area, but if you come here, you still need an interpreter to understand a bit more deeply, so you go to the ticket office and rent an interpreter, seven dollars dollars. The interpreter is in Chinese, but the Chinese explanation does not cover all the products. Many exhibits, such as the three-digit explanation code, or the English explanation. There is a complete temple in the Egyptian Pavilion, which is worth seeing. Besides, the collection of Arts and humanities here is so rich and frightening that many works of art known in books, or seen in books, can see authentic works here, so I have to lament the prosperity of the whole world. In addition, the Middle East Pavilion of the European Pavilion is quite interesting, and the courtyard garden of the Chinese Pavilion is also quite special. I spent a day visiting the Metropolitan Museum of Art. I spent more than eight hours in it. I haven't seen it completely yet. Many places are on the go. If you like museums, the Metropolitan Museum of Art can't really miss it.

    It happened to rain on the day we went. When we arrived at the door, all eyes were full of people and umbrellas. Our tickets are given by others. If we buy them by ourselves, they are 25 dollars a ticket. Ticket change, security check, loan guide (7 knives each), it's afternoon when you can see it formally. Looking at the crowds gathering in the hall, I regret not getting up earlier and starting early. With last year's experience in the Louvre, this year, from the point of view of most want to see, no longer waste time on things that do not interest you. As a result, it took me several hours to see only the European paintings, and my physical strength was apparently exhausted. Although the metropolis does not have to send bags compulsorily, there are staff everywhere reminding visitors carrying shoulder bags to put them on their chest. I guess there are two possible reasons: one is theft; the other is to protect the exhibits from being damaged by backpacks. If you're hungry, there are several restaurants at different prices in the museum. I went to cafeteria in ground floor, a salad and pasta dish weighed, which cost 25 knives, and the point is that it's not delicious. There are still some things you want to see and don't see. Wait till next time. You'll definitely go to New York again in two or three years.

    The Metropolitan Museum of Art is one of the four largest museums in the world, located on Fifth Avenue in New York, adjacent to Central Park. Nicknamed The Met, there are 17 exhibition halls. My sister saw Tang Bohu's authentic work Chang'e Zhiguitu in Ming Dynasty and Wang Xizhi's Goose View Picture painted by Qian Xuan in Yuan Dynasty. And Rubens, Van Gogh, Monet... Because the MET went first and then to the Louvre, I felt that some Greek sculptures were still very shocking at that time. Friends who loved art would spend more time in a day, their brains were not enough, and they would be very hard. I suggest that two days, if they only went to the scenic spots or took pictures with the group, they would really just visit here and punch in. If you come to New York, it's worth taking a day to appreciate slowly. It's very edifying to the spiritual world.
