This is the third and final set from our NY series - promise. The Met has got to be the loudest museum I've ever been to, which kind of annoyed me as I treat my museum experiences like how anyone else would behave when in a house of worship. Oh well, what can you expect from a museum that's also a tourist trap?

Our favorite exhibit was the Medieval/Weapons Collection - be sure to take a close look at the helmets and the armor!
