Metropolitan Museum of Art
in New York
I never get tired of the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York City. If you get caught in NYC on a rainy day, then head over to Fifth Avenue and 81st Street.
The Metropolitan Museum of Art has one of the most extensive Egyptian artifact exhibits that I know of and they have rebuilt a temple that was rescued from a river in Egypt since the river was slowly over taking it. The Temple was given to the U.S. as a gift from Egypt in 1965.
I went to several very fancy events in the Temple of Dendur Room when I was a TV producer in New York so I have very fond memories of the Met. It's also located right off of Central Park and is on my list of top five New York City attractions.
