  • Great exhibit, in truly one of the finest museums in the world. I have never run out of beautiful things to see there and try to visit every time I come to New York.  more »
  • If you want to see it complete, book a full afternoon and a lot of energy. It is gigantic, of the most complete museums that we have visited. It gives for many hours, seugn the enthusiasm, at least devote two hours, and more than 6 or more than a day if you can if you are very fan.

  • Always such a great place to visit. There's a bit of something for all, even if you aren't that into art. The Greek and Roman galleries are a personal favorite. I also love the European painting galleries. You can be there all day, and still not see the entire thing. The Frank Lloyd Wright room is something to behold, as is the Egyptian wing, and the European decorative arts section. They're like a trip back in time.

It is no exaggeration to say that the pavilion offers a comprehensive view of Islamic art. The pavilion contains works of art representing different stages of Islamic art, not only Arabic calligraphy and Islamic motifs, but also artistic pieces that reflect the development of Islamic architecture, the textile industry and the development of ceramics. The pavilion includes works from the ancient Islamic world of Arabia, Andalus, Egypt, Syria, India and Persia. The masterpiece of this wing may be the Damascene Hall, which embodies the magnificence of the art of Islamic architecture. The museum is not limited to its artistic collections, but occasionally offers artists from around the world or special performances of certain art stages or a particular country or continent. :: Photography of a lens "Pierre Gad" متحف المتروبوليتان للفنون (Metropolitan Museum of Art) هو متحف فنون يقع في سنترال بارك في نيويورك أسس 1870 و يعتبر من أشهر وأضخم متاحف العالم، يحتوى على أثار من جميع الحضارات وهو يفوق اللوفر بمراحل من حيث الضخامة. ::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::: :: الجناح الإسلامي :: الجناح الخاص بالفن الإسلامي يبرز هذا الجناح تطور هذا الفن منذ القرن السابع الميلادي وحتى القرن التاسع عشر وليس من المبالغة القول إن الجناح يقدم رؤية شاملة للفن الإسلامي. فالجناح يحتوي على أعمال فنية تمثل مراحل مختلفة من الفن الإسلامي ولا تقتصر على الخط العربي والمنمنمات والزخارف الإسلامية وإنما تشمل أيضا قطعا فنيا تعكس تطور المعمار الإسلامي وصناعة النسيج وتطور فن السيراميك.و الجناح يضم أعمالا من العالم الإسلامي القديم من الجزيرة العربية والأندلس ومصر وسوريا والعراق والهند وفارس ومنغوليا الهندية. وقد تكون تحفة هذا الجناح هي القاعة الدمشقية التي تجسد رفعة ما بلفه الفن الإسلامي المعماري ولا يقتصر المتحف على ما لديه من مجموعات فنية وإنما يقوم بين حين وأخر بتقديم عروض فنية لفنانين من العالم أو تقديم عروض خاصة لمراحل فنية معينة أو لبلد أو قارة معينة. :: تصوير بعدسة "بيار جاد"
