At a Glance

Author Tom Wolfe said of New York City: “Culture just seems to be in the air, like part of the weather.” Absorb the art treasures of that culture at three iconic museums: the Museum of Modern Art, the Metropolitan Museum of Art and the Frick Collection. First, explore the MoMA, often called the most important museum dedicated to modern art in the world today, boasting works by Dalí, Monet, Picasso, van Gogh and Warhol. Discover The Met, a museum that is to New York what the Louvre is to Paris with collections spanning from Ancient Rome and Egypt to the Renaissance and beyond. Step inside the opulent mansion of steel magnate Henry Clay Frick, where today the Frick Collection is housed, showcasing works by El Greco, Rembrandt and Vermeer.
