We decided to make a day at the famous Metropolitan Museum, or more famously known as “The Met”. We kicked started our day with breakfast at Juniors, located at Grand Central Terminal. The original is in Brooklyn and there’s another location in midtown. The breakfast was decent but the best part was the cheesecake! Omg was it delicious!
Originally we were going to take a taxi to The Met, but since we were already at Grand Central Terminal, we decided to take the subway. I mean, every tourist should experience a New York subway ride, right?? Unfortunately, due to my sense of (or lack of) direction, I took my parents and Stephen on the wrong train. We were heading away from the City, and after 2 transfers, we finally made it to 86th Street, the stop we needed for the Museum Mile. The museum wasn’t that close to the subway station, but we did finally get there.

We checked in our coats, and got our tickets. The suggested donation to The Met is $25, but you can give less. Knowing that we wouldn’t see everything, we donated $10.
We spent most of our time in the Egyptian collection….
Eventually we made it out of Egypt, and saw “classic” art from greats like Picasso, Van Gogh, Monet, etc.
