Did you know that if you make a “contribution” to The Metropolitan Museum of Art, you can get an admission ticket to the museum? Donate any dollar amount from $20, $10, $5, or even $1, and you can get a ticket to browse through the whole museum! There are no limitations so treat it as a regular adult price of $25. The representative had informed me that the reason why they give people this option is to attract more visitors. Honestly, they’re able to do something like this because they have a long list of companies and organizations that funds the place.
The Met is like Disneyland — you can’t get through it in one day. My sister and I like to take our time in museums, learning about the history and culture that surrounded these artifacts. Because of that, we were only able to get through China : Through The Looking Glass. The connection between art and fashion was absolutely breathtaking — the exhibit, itself, created a story that allowed everyone to be a character in. Unfortunately, the exhibit’s duration expired last week. Although it is not the same, you can always take a glimpse of the exhibit here.
Before I end my snippet about The Met, make sure to check out the rooftop (4th floor) for an incredible view of the city’s skyline and Central Park.
Check out my review on Red Bamboo here! My sister and I also visited Van Leeuwen Artisan Ice Cream, but I didn’t write a review for it. The reason being is because I had only taken a bite out of my sister’s ice cream cone, and to my regret I wish I had gotten myself one! Typically, I never say no to ice cream, but the meal I had at Red Bamboo was so good that I didn’t leave any room for dessert!
Stay tune tomorrow for more of my travel updates!
