The Met has 19 curatorial collections on view every day. Choose a part of the globe, medium or time period in the past five millenia and you’re likely to find representative art works from it on the museum’s two floors that span four city blocks. Outdoor sculptures, installations and the cityscape can be seen on the roof garden (weather permitting). Gallery tours take place daily and special exhibitions are always on view.
