MASTERS MONDAY: The Metropolitan Museum of Art

Happy Monday all!! I know most of you don't like Mondays, so I am this bog today in hopes of beautifying your day!

Usually, I display a series of art works by various artists. Today, I thought I would change it up and take you on a tour of my favorite museum:  The Metropolitan Museum of Art.

The Metropolitan Museum of Art is one of the world's largest and finest art museums.

It is located on the edge of Central Park on Fifth Avenue. (lower right in picture below)
