When it comes to timeless institutions, New York City's The Metropolitan Museum of Art is certainly one of our favorites. Huge, stately and full of incredible art of all kinds—yes, we want to be there all the time. Unsurprisingly, The Met has a great social media presence. Their Instagram is full of great atmospheric shots and enough pictures of the art and museum events that we feel like we're there, even if we're hundreds of miles away. Click through for 10 of our favorite recent Instagrams from one of the world's best museums.
