It’s Old Christmas! In my household, we keep up the decorations until January 6th. We turn on the lights and look at the beautiful decor 1 last time before we pack everything for the season. I know, everyone talks about Christmas tree at Rockefeller Center. And, yes you should take time to see it. But, there’s 1 more tree you need to check out in NYC. The Christmas season wouldn’t be complete without seeing it….
It the Annual Christmas Tree and Neapolitan baroque creche at Metropolitan Museum of Art, the “Met” is the largest and most visited art museum in the United States. Right inside the Medieval Sculpture Hall, you’ll see an amazing Christmas tree decorated with cherubs, angels and Neapolitan nativity scene with over 200 figures. It an awesome sight to see!
Once you’re done “oooohh” and “aaaaah” over the tree, you need to check out the rest of the museum. It has over 2 million works of art divided up in many curatorial departments consisting of modern, Eastern, African, Asian, Egyptian art, drawing, prints and more than I can name.
Ever better, there are always events and activities going. You can interact with the artists, see musical or dance performance, create art, go on a gallery tour or listen to a lecture. And to top it off, they have a travelling program to connect people to art, inspiration and historical points of views. That’s definitely up my alley. What about you? Make sure you leave a comment. I want to hear your thoughts. Bye for now!
