  • Metropolitan Museum of Art
    The Metropolitan Museum of Art's four-block-long building, located in Central Park, functions as a time capsule, preserving hundreds of thousands of paintings, sculptures, and artifacts that collectively demonstrate mankind's finest achievements. Founded in 1870 to bring fine art closer to the general public, the Museum has since become a means of exploring worldwide cultures through art. With more than 400 galleries open to the public, seeing all the Museum has to offer is more of a lifetime achievement than an afternoon commitment. Paintings by preeminent artists such as Claude Monet and Vincent Van Gogh draw huge crowds, but unexpected treasures await those willing to dig deeper. One collection of galleries features the world?s most comprehensive collection of American paintings, sculpture, and decorative arts. Another, equally compelling?and newly reopened?collection is devoted to intricate Islamic artwork from as far westward as Spain and Morocco and as far eastward as Central Asia and India. It's also impossible to overlook the galleries of Egyptian art and its approximately 26,000 artifacts, making it the largest collection of its kind outside Cairo. The Cloisters Museum and Gardens The Met?s collection is so expansive that it cannot fit entirely in its Fifth Avenue location. Travel to Fort Tryon Park in northern Manhattan, and you'll find the Museum's collection of reassembled cloisters, which opened to the public in 1938. These beautiful medieval structures currently house around 2,000 manuscripts, tapestries, and stained-glass artworks largely dating from the 12th century through the 15th century. Three of the cloisters even feature gardens planted in accordance with medieval tradition.

  • Walk of Art
    The organizers of Walk of Art believe that a painting doesn't have to hang in a museum to be considered true art. They see artistic creations all over the streets and buildings of New York City, and share these dynamic discoveries through walking tours. They lead guests through what they call an "open-air gallery" spanning five boroughs, pouring over street art including multihued murals, intricate graffiti, wheat-paste art, and stencil work. They also elaborate upon each piece's story and meaning, and can spot graffiti signatures that to the untrained eye might just look like a blob of ink or an ancient hieroglyph. For those who have a certain area in mind, the guides also lead private tours throughout eclectic Brooklyn.

  • Museum of Modern Art
    Van Gogh’s Starry Night. Dali’s The Persistence of Memory. Warhol’s Campbells Soup Cans. MoMA’s “most viewed” works are familiar to most, but the collection offers plenty of surprises. American artist Charles Gaines’ Manifestos 2 , for instance, combines music and moving images—four compositions transcribed from revolutionary political speeches—which are broadcast simultaneously and in variants as a comment on political activism.
