Saturday Snapshot: Metropolitan Museum of Art Favorites

on January 4, 2014

The weekend after Christmas we headed down to NJ to visit relatives. We love to stop in NYC on the way. This time, for the first time, we brought the children to one of my favorite places: the Metropolitan Museum of Art. Here are some of our favorite things we saw:

IMG_1860Anne loves Ancient Egypt!

IMG_1862Jack loves arms and armor!

IMG_1874This came out a bit blurry, but I loved the big tree they had with all the angels and the kreche set.

IMG_1866And while we were enjoying the period rooms, we decided that it is a very good thing that my husband did NOT live in the 1600’s!

    I can’t believe I’ve never been to the Metropolitan Museum of Art. I need to go! Your kids have the same passions that mine did when they were younger. My daughter even learned to read hieroglyphs. .Here’s Mine

    We only had time for one museum when we visited NYC, so we decided on modern art. Hope to return one day and see this one.

    Love the horses’ armor. They look like they are going on parade.

    I love the Met and really would like to see it at Christmas – one of these days. . .

    I sometimes wish I could time-travel to go back and experience things first hand. Thanks for the trip back in time!
