have you MET?

Metropolitan Museum of Art 01
Metropolitan Museum of Art – Halloween trip to the MET

The MET has thousands of beautiful artifacts and art to explore.  You and your date can meander through the museum and talk about art and life as you get to know each other better.

If a museum sounds a bit too stuffy for your tastes try a themed trip to the MET.  Make a small scavenger hunt of things to find or dress up in matching costumes.  I’ll bet your date will appreciate the creativity and Halloween is right around the corner.

PRICE:  Donation based (for NY residents) so pay what you wish.  I like to put out a dollar bill and say, “two please”.

TIP: Make sure not to stay more than an hour or so. Explore and enjoy a few sections or pieces and then come back another day to explore some more.  This will help keep the experience fresh and captivating.  More MET info
