The Metropolitan Museum of Art and Central Park
As a Medieval Studies major, my favorite part of the museum is the Medieval Art section, which has many sculptures of saints, the Virgin and Child, and kings. There are also many tapestries, stained glass windows, plaques, manuscripts, altarpieces, and the beautiful medieval gates that stand at the center of the main gallery. It is an absolutely breathtaking site, especially during Christmastime, when there is a giant Christmas tree placed right in front of the gates.
