Alice in Wonderland in Central Park

Our trip almost came to an end and one thing i really had to do in New York was visiting the Metropolitan Museum of Art. The subway brought us to Central Park and we walked around there a little bit first. The weather was great and lots of people were in the park. We saw some nice statues of fairy tales and i even sat on the knee of Hans Christian Andersson. When we reached the Museum, Chris and i stayed and the others moved on to 8th street to shop. The museum was really great. There was so much to see. You could spend days there without seeing the same art twice. We went to see modern paintings, european sculptures and european paintings. What a great collection. For those who have been there, you can compare it to the Louvre museum in Paris a little.

Central Park
All kinds of art are represented here. Personally i liked the Italian paintings and the Dutch paintings of Vermeer most. An audioguide guided us alongside the most important artworks because it was impossible to see all the art. After a few hours we left the Museum to find the others at 8th street. It took a while but after seeing some expensive shops and a piece of the Berlin Wall (really!) we found them. They had a great day shopping and we had a great day at the museum. We didn't have plans for that night yet but we wanted to see a show on Broadway if that was possible so my father, Chris and I went to Times Square to see if we could buy tickets for a show. When we saw the line with waiting people, our enthousiasm was gone... Oh my! People were waiting for hours there to get tickets! We decided to have a nice dinner at the Pigalle restaurant and to stay there for a while. We had a great night and it was quite relaxed to do just nothing. We played some cards later that night and went to our rooms early to pack our luggage. We would leave to The Netherlands the next day!

Beautiful Museum
The Metropolitan Museum of Art is of course a must in New York. Unlike museums in some other cities in the USA, this museum isn't free. It's actually … read entire review
