I found this a useful guide to the Metropolitan Museum of Art. Of course their acquisitions and exhibits change, and frankly the binding sucks and it's the kind of book you can expect to soon fall apart--which is why I'm docking a star. But it's still given the maps a good way to make your way through the museum, and that's especially useful if like me you're a New York City resident. And if you're not, and you only visited, it's like taking a nice little album of your visit home with you. ( )

This is a great guide of selected works at the Met. It has good maps which show you what is on what wall in many of the walls. It has a vertical orientation which makes it a bit hard to open all the way. ( )

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0300085583, Hardcover)

This is a revised edition of the guide to the Metropolitan Museum of Art, New York. The guide describes the museum's vast collections and its buildings, including the Cloisters, and includes nearly 900 works of art from the museum's 18 curatorial departments, selected by the director of the museum, Philippe de Montebello. The works of art illustrated in the book range from the art of the ancient world to that of the present day. The concise format of the guide, its informative text and many illustrations, make it a handy companion to those visiting the museum, and a useful addition to the art-lover's library.
