The permanent collection of this famed museum contains more than two million works of art. Don’t miss the stunning wings that house the extensive collection of Greek and Roman antiquities, American antiques and Islamic Art. The 19th century galleries, home to works by such artists as Degas, Monet and Renoir, contain one of the most comprehensive collections of French Impressionist art outside of the Louvre as well as 19th-century art movements and styles, including Neo-Classicism, Romanticism, the Pre-Raphaelites, the Barbizon school, and Realism.

If you’re looking for a nice lunch break nearby, consider Sant Ambroeus, the restaurant at the Carlyle or taking a picnic to Central Park. During the summer months, come late on a Friday or Saturday, when the museum is open until 9 pm, and have a drink on the rooftop terrace that overlooks the park and the Upper West Side.
