Step back in time and admire the wonders of Ancient Egypt, Greece and Rome, with magnificent works and intriguing sights, all explained in detail by your local expert guide. You'll also get to see exotic cultures with a stop in Papua New Guinea.

The Met houses a number of beautifully carved Bisj poles, collected by a Rockefeller – at the cost of his life. You'll then head to the second floor to soak in some of Claude Monet’s famous Water Lillies, be energized by the expressive works of Vincent Van Gogh, and be inspired by a bronze of Rodin’s Thinker. Enjoy!
