Default A couple hours at the Metropolitan Museum

I am glad that my 'low cost' camera batteries have failed just before i entered the Metropolitan Museum. 'My' pictures were therefore taken by my illustrious host and his top quality camera.
Here are a few, for those who never visited this great Museum.
... starting with a set from the Alexandria Arsenal.

Excellent photos, I'd love to go there myself some day. I think I'd need a week though!
