  • It was founded in 1934, but has since been under expansion in 1975 and 2011. It was a small start, but in 1959, samuel Cress made a name for himself by presenting 53 Renaissance baroque paintings. There are only 25 places in the world, and the luxury of owning Becca Fumi is not the only city in the Metropolitan Museum of Art. This perfect panel painting of Uccello is not something that can be seen so. There are also a selection of dignified products such as Spinello Aretino, Lorenzo Lott, Dosso Dossi, Domenico Tintoretto, Steen and Annivale Caracci. The collection of American painters begins with Benjamin West and is one of the best in The Stuart, Rembrandt Peel, Bearstad, Akins, Henlai, Gluckens and Milton Avery.

  • One of the best features was the kids' playroom which was rather large and well furnished with books, activities, multiple family bathrooms, sofas, comfy chairs, a large bronze turtle for climbing on, and an art studio (sponsored by Crayola) - all an unexpected treat. The museum also had a "treasure hunt" teaching kids to observe and comment on the art (the awarded "treasure" was cool modeling clay), as well as a "passport/stamp" program. They really make a determined effort to be child- and family- friendly which we appreciated. The playroom also had tote bags with activities the kids could do in the galleries too - very thoughtful.
  • Such beautiful art with so much culture. Idk who had more fun me or the kids the staff was so nice and took time to answer all the kids many questions! Everyone was great I highly recommend to ad to your to do list!
