When was the last time you paid a visit to a museum? Living in the tri-state area, national landmarks and museums see more tourists than locals. Instead of aimlessly wandering around Manhattan, my wife and I planned a trip to the Metropolitan Museum of Art. The MET happens to be the largest art museum in the United States. Once through the gatekeepers in the main lobby, you now have permission to get lost down the labyrinth of corridors and stairways.
My last time at the MET was probably during a class trip in school. Since its been that long, we decided that using a map to get around, was the smart thing to do. The adventure in losing yourself at the MET, allows you to experience diverse cultures and talent as you walk from room to room. On the streets of Fifth Ave, it’s 2018, but inside, you can explore upper and lower Egypt, the art or warfare of knights from London to the influence of fashion on the Catholic church.
If you have a Bank of America debit/ credit card, there is a program that allows the card holder free admission the 1st weekend of every month. “Click here” for details, for a list of participating museums in your area. Summer is here for a brief moment. What do you plan on discovering in your city, that can enrich your life?
