World's Most-Visited Museums

No. 5 Metropolitan Museum of Art, New York City

Annual Visitors: 5,216,988

The Met drew 300,000 more visitors in 2010 than in 2009 thanks to a Picasso special exhibition and Doug and Mike Starn’s buzzed-about temporary Big Bambú installation on the roof. You can expect even higher visitation numbers in 2011 due to the Alexander McQueen show, which drew 661,509 visitors, some of whom waited in line for hours to get in. The McQueen show is now the eighth most popular in Met history. metmuseum.org
