Welcoming Spring at The Met

When spring arrives New Yorkers find new life. It can be a bit cold at the start however, and the balance between enjoying the outdoors and staying warm can be tricky. Our favorite spot to take it all in: The Metropolitan Museum of Art (The Met). We had a few CityPASSes for my husband and I, and our kids were covered since children under 12 are free!

People often ask me if The Met is a good museum for kids. I love their family programs, but especially the Family Map that makes discovering the various exhibits that much more fun and interactive.

I am also a big fan at how it encourages conversations between my boys and I about different cultures and parts of the world. From Greece to Rome, to Japan and other parts of Asia.

We spent most of our day in the museum, taking breaks in between and even grabbing a snack in-house. If you are planning to visit NYC, set a day aside for this really special place.

We want to thank our friends at CityPASS for the complimentary passes, and invite you to check out other ways in which we have benefited from the purchase of these passes when discovering other cities in our travels. We find them to be such a great investment in our travel experiences, especially in helping to save money for our family of 5.  Be sure to check out the newest city added to the CityPASS collection, Tampa Bay, with passes to fun attractions such as Busch Gardens Tampa and the Chihuly Collection.

In the meantime, enjoy the images from our day at the museum and hope that you can make it over there soon too! (Don’t miss out on the spring bloom slowly taking place in Central Park right next door!)

We loved starting our tour by admiring the Roman and Greek sculptures.

The museum also has a wonderful collection of paintings from more contemporary artists that even children can enjoy.

Make sure to take breaks and grab a snack or two during your visit, especially when visiting with kids. A few breaks here and there make it easier to take in all the museum has to offer.
