Tour Description
Please note: tour confirmation is pending reservations at the Met which are currently limited due to COVID capacity restrictions.

The Metropolitan Museum of Art is among the most-visited institutions across the globe, and is home to many of the world’s most influential pieces of art. During our 2-hour Met After Dark tour, we’ll get the chance to see the museum in the rare beauty of evening light, as the crowds dissipate for the day. We’ll explore selected works in the museum’s collection with an expert in art history, whose specialized knowledge and tailored approach will help bring these artworks to life. 

Met Museum at Night

We’ll begin the tour with a sunset viewing of the Temple of Dendur, exploring the monumental temple as if on the shore of the Nile at dusk. We’ll then work our way through the American Wing, where the building’s original copper lights illuminate the wing’s emblematic golden Diana sculpture. 

Depending on the group’s interests, we’ll weave our way through tucked corridors to discover some of the museum’s most beautiful hidden gems, like a Ming Dynasty garden, larger-than-life Rodin sculptures, and starlit Roman busts. 

No matter what your interest or level of expertise, our expert art historian will ensure you’ll leave the museum with a deeper understanding of the collections and better tools to view art, all in time for dinner!

Great tour very nice and Excellent knowledge of the museum and it's artefacts as well as the art we really enjoyed our time. Irina navigated the museum and made it so much fun to get to see so much in such a short time. Well worth the price. Next time I'm in New York City. I will definitely do this.Thank you for such a great time.
Loved it!!
Isabelle was an outstanding guide! We had been to the Met previously, but she shed a new light on the things we had seen before and showed us galleries that we had never set foot in. We absolutely loved every second of the tour and hope to have Isabelle show us around other museums in the future!
