A VIP Night at the Met Museum

The most gorgeous spaces of the Met come to life at night. Whether its live chamber music on the Great Hall balcony or mood lighting throughout the museum, our evening tour of the Met takes advantage of the museum’s nocturnal wonders as we guide you through the collection with an eye for the most dramatic and enchanting.

Choose among two bars and lounges within the museum to start or end your tour: there’s the Met’s more public Balcony Bar which has live chamber music, or the exclusive and elegant Balcony Lounge. As you relax and imbibe, your expert guide will act as your own personal art historian, answering any questions about art and artists, the museum or New York.

With world-class art, a charming bar and delicious wines, we think you’ll agree that this special Met tour and tasting is the perfect New York experience. For this VIP evening Met tour experience, treats and beverages are available for purchase a-la-carte.

We recommend this on Friday and Saturday evenings for the best experience.

Pricing for this tour starts at $600 for 2 hours, plus admission, for up to 5 people. For larger groups, please contact us.
