New York City’s Metropolitan Museum of Art has been named the world’s number one museum by Trip Advisor. The award is classified as a Traveler’s Choice, and results are gathered from the number and ratings of reviews over the past 12 months.
Founded in 1870, The Met displays more than 5,000 years of artwork from around the globe. The museum offers comprehensive exhibitions, activities and programs to the millions of visitors it accommodates each year, as well as guided daily tours in numerous languages.
“We’re incredibly honoured to receive this recognition from our visitors,” says President and CEO of The Met, Daniel H. Weiss. “We care deeply about the experience our visitors have at the Museum, and strive every day to present our collection, exhibitions, and programs in an exciting and engaging manner.”
The Met is the only museum to win the award for three consecutive years.
