Museum Adventure in NYC

I am not a fan of museums. Although I heard a huge amount of positive comments from my friends about the Metropolitan Museum of Art, I preferred the idea of shopping on the Fifth Avenue instead of walking into any museum. However, all the friends I traveled with wanted to visit the Metropolitan Museum of Art and American Museum of Natural History. I had to go with them. Now I feel so lucky that I have visited those two museums. Amazing is not enough to describe my experience. Both museums are so huge, especially the Metropolitan. I saw so many precious art pieces from all over the world. The diversity is great. Even merely looking at the objects without learning the history was enough to wow me. It is especially fun to look at those from China and learn how our culture and history is presented in an American museum. All in all, I got the chance to see those pieces I thought I could only see in my history or art textbook in high school. What’s more, the design of the Metropolitan itself is a piece of art. I felt I was walking in a palace full of treasure. It may take a week to see all the stuff in either museum. I will definitely visit those museums again. Now I have developed a new interest due to that experience: visiting museums.
