New York City has, arguably, the largest collection of important museums in the world. From the vast exhibits at the Metropolitan Museum of Art to the quirky yet fun Children's Museum of Manhattan, NYC offers something for every taste. There are more than 100 museums from which to choose. New York City makes it more affordable for visitors to sample the city's museums with its City Pass, which offers admission to the top six museums for one price.


1. The Metropolitan Museum of Art

Located on the east side of Central Park in the heart of the Upper East Side, the Metropolitan Museum of Art is one of the most significant art museums in the world. The collection includes more than two million objects, spanning from prehistoric times to the present. The museum is particularly noted for its French Impressionist exhibit, the Egyptian Temple of Dendur, which was rebuilt inside the museum, and its collection of Medieval arms and armor. More than seven million people visit "The Met" each year.
