    Umm, Who Let These Idiots Into A Museum?

    BuzzFeed BFF had a private tour, and let's just say a lot of emojis and memes were involved.

    WARNING: this post is long and ridiculous. No art was harmed in the process. Do not try this at The Met or they might throw you out.

    Last week, 10 members of the BuzzFeed BFF team got invited to a private, early hours tour of The Metropolitan Museum of Art. They gave us 1 hour to run around before anyone else was there, doing whatever we wanted. The Met calls the tour #EmptyMet and hopefully we didn't cause too much trouble!

    First, we ate yogurt & wore headbands on the Met steps. Because obviously.

    We're at the @metmuseum, xoxo

    SPOTTED: Huge Gossip Girl fans. You know you love us, XOXO.

    Since we were ditching work anyway, we recreated one of the most famous days off.

    Remember the museum scene from Ferris Bueller's Day Off? Well, we lived it!

    We saw ancient statues

    We looked, but didn't touch. Mostly.

    Some of the statues saw US... and were into it?

    Some of them couldn't see us because their faces fell off.

    Actually, that part was kinda horrifying.

    But limbs or not, they were all beautiful. Great.

    Hate these unrealistic body standards

    Next, we checked out ancient Egypt.

    We peeped a lot of cool statues and engravings. Some of them peeped us back.

    The best way to learn is by asking questions.

    Some people have a perfectly reasonable fear of mummies.


    This Egyptian tomb was beautiful and tranquil in the early morning light.

    By now, we were running out of time, so we had to hurry it up.

    There were butts

    ...and more butts


    More statues (naturally)

    This guy

    Then it was onto the paintings!

    Can I please?

    One of our writer's "second favorite" painting.

    We asked even more important questions.

    who wore it best??? #emptymet @metmuseum

    "It's ok guys, Miguel and Frank are both great."

    There were a LOT of florals.


    We spent our last few moments up on the roof!

    Take one more look at that million-dollar view...

    The whole experience was truly magical!

    Best. Day. Ever.
