Since I applied for my IDNYC which I wrote in my last blog, I have benefited greatly from the free museums in NYC. I have been to almost 20 museums and most of them enjoyed international fame both in historic and artistic perspective. Check here to read my last post about IDNYC.
Out of all these amazing museums in NYC, I would like to recommend 5 best museums to you that will amaze you.
1.The Metropolitan Museum of Art
The Metropolitan Museum of Art, also known as the MET, is the largest and most well-known museum in NYC. It is located on the prosperous 5th Avenue that divided the Manhattan into East and West and it is also the largest building sited in Central Park. With second stories and more than the size of 4 football fields, the MET has the largest collection of fine arts in the United States, ranging from ancient Egypt, China and Japan to modern contemporary arts.

2. The Museum of Modern Arts
The Museum of Modern Arts has the largest collection of contemporary and modern arts in New York. The Modern Arts Gallery located on the second floor of the MOMA building and it is the most confusing and abstract and absurd art gallery. One of the most famous work is called Lament of the Images, which is basically a screen with pure bright light glories in a large dark isolated room. The simplicity and abstraction of this art piece stands out from the others in this world full of surrealism and minimalism. Click here to prepare for your visit!
3. American Museum of Natural History
The AMNH is a historical museum that first built in 1880s, dated back to more than one hundred years ago. Since 1900s, the museum has been expanded for several times with more galleries being built, such as the Gallery of Water Life and Cosmic World Gallery. This is a museum about natural history, so it collects a wide-spanned models of life species and natural phenomenon with few living creatures. Check here for more information.
4. New York Hall of Science
New York Hall of Science is a science museum sited in Flushing, Queens. With hundreds of scientific models, it is a place for you to bring your kids and amaze them, at the meantime giving them lectures on many scientific phenomenon.
