Private Guided Tours of the Metropolitan Museum of Art

Looking for a Met tour? The Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York City is one of the largest and most impressive art museums in the world. With dozens of galleries filled with American, European, Egyptian, Asian, Modern and Contemporary, and Ancient art (plus rotating exhibitions), there is no end of things to see and do on your Met tour. It is the perfect NYC museum to explore if you want to get a broad selection of the finest art.

A private, guided tour with Art Smart makes the Met more manageable and memorable. Whether you are on your own or traveling with friends, colleagues, or family, our professional art historian guides will take you off the beaten path of the standard tour and straight to the collections and exhibitions that will appeal to you and your companions.

How it Works

Our Met tours are $175 per hour for up to five people, or one immediate family group, plus admission. We’ll get the tickets ahead of time so that you won’t have to wait in any lines. During the booking process, you’ll be able to tell us when and what you’d like to tour. You’ll also have the opportunity to tell us how we can customize the tour for you and yours. With that, we’ll create the perfect Metropolitan Museum of Art guided art tour for you.

All of our art guides are trained and qualified art historians. We’ll match you with the right one based on the timing and area of focus. Want to know more about our Art Tour Guides?
