The New York Times debuted "Make the Most of The Met," a guide to the Metropolitan Museum of Art. It highlights the best of the museum's offerings and offers tips to help visitors on their journey through one of America's most visited museums. Daniel McDermon, an editor on the culture desk, walks readers through the museum's five must-sees, some of the museum’s most amazing architectural spaces, and recommends tips for navigating the Met with kids in tow. The Guide also includes a downloadable map created by The New York Times which visitors can print out or save to a mobile device and use to navigate the museum.

The Metropolitan Museum of Art contains an incomparable collection of humanity’s greatest accomplishments — spanning 6,000 years and the entire globe. Where else can you see the inside of an Egyptian tomb, a full set of Japanese armor and a room of Renaissance paintings in one day?

This is the first in a new series of Guides to iconic museums.
