Metropolitan Museum of Art
It’s one of the top ten visited attractions in the whole United States and certainly at the top of the list for amazing museums. The Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York City has everything you want in New York City student tours – educational value, history, inspiration, culture, relevance, and art.
First and foremost an art museum, the Met puts its pieces in the context of history, giving you a two for one in educational value. Its collections span the ages and the globe with pieces from Ancient Egypt, Europe, and more. You know to expect world famous paintings inside, but the museum has other extensive collections as well, including sculptures, an armor gallery, costumes, and a historical display of musical instruments.
The Met is beautifully situated next to Central Park. Together they have enough to offer for an entire day of activity – and much more than one if you’re thorough. It’s simply one of the best museums in the world and absolutely perfect for student tours.
