We came on a Sunday afternoon. Admission was $5 since we are military. There are great artifacts in their collection from ask over the world. The folk art was unimpressive, however.

The Nelson A. Rockefeller Center for Latin American Art occupied us for hours. The collection ranges from pre-Columbian to contemporary art, and I particularly enjoyed the Spanish colonial period religious art and the folk art.

There are several collections that merit a visit, the Mexican art is the major one. There is a surprisingly good Roman, Greek and ancient Egyptian collection. All well displayed and curated. There was a great Chinese travelling exhibit, and I assume other high quality shows.
