Age of Empires: Chinese Art of the Qin and Han Dynasties (221 B.C.–A.D. 220)

Monday, April 3–Sunday, July 16, 10:00 am–6:00 pm
Metropolitan Museum Of Art (1000 Fifth Avenue at 82nd Street)
Pay-what-you-wish, suggested $25, free/ages 12 & under


See an army of life-size terracotta warriors in this landmark exhibit eaturing more than 160 objects of ancient Chinese art. The works in the exhibition—extremely rare ceramics, metalwork, textiles, sculpture, painting, calligraphy, and architectural models—are drawn from 32 museums and archaeological institutions in China, and a majority of the works have never before been seen in the West.


Nearby Eat & Treats: Inside the museum, the American Wing Cafe has soups, salads, sandwiches and a gorgeous view of Central Park. 'the cafeteria' in the basement is less scenic but has more selection - pasta, sushi, hot entrees, a frozen yogurt sundae bar and kids' meals that come in cardboard taxis. The Roof Garden has some snacks (and you can bring your own and nosh with a view). Or head to Shake Shack (86th between Lexington & Third) or the chill Pizza Beach (81st & Third). Pick up one of the city's best black-and-white cookies at William Greenberg (1100 Madison between 82nd & 83rd).
