With more than two million works of art inside its walls, the museum represents five thousand years of artistic history – looking at everything here could take up your whole week! So, plan ahead and decide what you want to see the most in this huge building’s labyrinthine corridors.


#3. Climb the Empire State Building:

A trip to New York is certainly far from complete without a trip up the iconic Empire State Building. With its super-slim silhouette spanning 102 floors, the Empire State Building is a symbol of the Big Apple that’s recognizable virtually worldwide. Visitors can make their way up to the deck on the 86th floor for some spectacular views over the city, or go up even further to the observation deck on the very top floor for a truly unique experience from 1,250 feet off the ground.


#4.  Watch a Broadway Show:

Whether you’re a massive fan of theatre, or simply want some fun and entertainment during your trip, head over to the over three dozen Broadway theaters that can mainly be found surrounding Times Square. Choose from a plethora of big-budget musicals, independent plays, or stage debuts featuring some of the big names in Hollywood – there’s bound to be something that takes your fancy here. Bear in mind that it’s best to purchase advance tickets for the popular shows, however, you can try your luck for discounted tickets on the day at the Times Square TKTS booth.
