A rainy day in New York City is a perfect day to explore a museum.
The Metropolitan Museum of Art is huge, over 500 rooms according to the floor plan map! Since you can’t see it all in one visit, you just pick a place to begin and wander till you run out of time…….
The American Wing has a Tiffany glass exhibit.
There are rooms of rooms picked up out of castles, mansions and houses and dropped right into the museum.
There are rooms of Egyptian ruins and relics.
The newest exhibit includes art from the Arab lands, plus Turkey, Iran, Central and South Asia. We made a second visit to see it.
This is a tiny Qur’an, about a 2 inch cube.
This painted wood paneled room had an intricate ceiling.
The room with these arches was built on site. There was a video showing how the artists did the delicate carving in the plaster.
