This was the first time I’d taken Glass to a museum, and while the signs all said photos were welcome so long as flash wasn’t used, I was a little uncertain as to how the guides might receive it.
There were no issues whatsoever, a couple of them asked about it, but purely from a curiosity and interest perspective rather than with any negativity. As always, it was a great way to take pictures as we wandered around, and also helped me to quickly access information to try and appear that I was staying one step ahead of my nine-year-old who has an incredible knowledge of Greek mythology and Egyptology courtesy of his love of Rick Riordan books!
The Met is such a beautiful space, with only a few short steps separating you from a multitude of different wonders.
The brief visit we had was nowhere near long enough to discover even a fraction of the treasures that the Met holds, so we will definitely be back on our next NYC trip.
I was especially thrilled with how welcoming the Met was to Glass, but what else would you expect from a museum forward thinking enough to have its guides running tours via Google Hangouts!
