The Metropolitan Museum of Art, better known simply as The Met, is the largest art museum in the United States and among the most-visited art museums in the world. The Met was founded in 1870 by a group of American citizens — businessmen and financiers as well as leading artists and thinkers of the day — who wanted to create a museum to bring art and art education to the American people. The museum presents dozens of exhibits each year as well as thousands of events and programs including films, talks, performances, guided tours and family activities.
This Metropolitan Museum of Art ticket introduces an abundance of art in 17 curatorial departments. There are splendors of ancient Egypt, plus armor and weapons of sculptural and ornamental beauty from Europe, the Middle East, Asia and America. Look for European paintings, sculptures, drawings and prints and more than 20,000 photographs acquired by the museum over the past 80 years.
And if that weren’t enough, this ticket also includes admission to The Met Cloisters and The Met Breuer.
