Metropolitan Museum of Art
The vast collection of art contained within this palatial museum (founded in 1870) is one of the world's largest, with more than two million individual objects in its permanent collection: paintings, sculptures, textiles and artifacts from around the globe – even an ancient Egyptian temple straight from the banks of the Nile. 'The Met' has 17 acres of exhibition space to explore, so plan to spend at least several hours here. (Wear comfy shoes.)
