The Metropolitan Museum of Art
The Metropolitan Museum of Art opened on February 20, 1872. The original building was comprised of redbrick and stone but has since been updated with a façade in the Beaux-Arts style. The building is located on 5th Avenue and 82nd Street right near Central Park.
As you enter, you’ll walk into the Great Hall and from there you can make your way through the building’s 3 floors and numerous mezzanines. The entire building is roughly 2 million sq ft and almost a ¼ mile long.
