I don't know about you, but I'm feeling pretty culturally starved. Sure I'm pretending to read the enormous stack of books I've amassed the past few months (in addition to the spare room full of books I started with), and sure I'm watching historical biographies on Amazon every night (highly recommend Edith Wharton: The Sense of Harmony btw), but alas, life in New York is just not what it once was.

And so The Metropolitan Museum of Art's reopening is exactly the sort of good news the city has been desperate for! The cultural mecca will reopen on August 29th for visitors, with Members allowed exclusive early access on August 27th and 28th (there's plenty of perks to being a Member than just the parties!).

From new wonders to old favorites, click through for just a few of the things you should be most excited to go pay a visit to!
