Exhibitions
In Praise of Painting: Dutch Masterpieces at The Met
Now on - Oct 4, 2020

The work of Rembrandt, Hals, Vermeer and their contemporaries have long been some of the Met's highlight pieces. United by this long-running exhibition, there's rarely been a better time to view the Netherlands' 17th-century masterpieces in such great context.

Housed side by side, these masterstrokes of the Dutch Golden Age provide a unique visual commentary on the period's tensions between realism and idealism, exploring key cultural issues of the time. Don't miss your chance to view over 60 remarkable works, including some which seldom enjoy time on display.

In Pursuit of Fashion: The Sandy Schreier Collection
Now on - May 17, 2020

Over the course of 50+ years, Sandy Schreier has amassed a clothes collection that would make most fashionistas go weak at the knees. Her extensive trove of 20th-century French and American couture, and ready-to-wear garments was not intended as a personal wardrobe, but more as a private art collection.

In Pursuit of Fashion: The Sandy Schreier Collection celebrates one of the finest private fashion collections in the United States as part of the Met’s 2020 Collections Initiative. You'll see womenswear, accessories, and fashion illustrations dating from a 1908 pochoir album to a 2004 Phillip Treacy hat.

So, if you like the idea of window shopping for priceless fashion pieces that almost nobody can afford, this is the exhibition for you!

How do you celebrate your 150th birthday? With a thought-provoking exhibition that takes people on an immersive journey through your life's highlight reel of course! At least that's what you do when you're a preeminent cultural institution. Making The Met, 1870–2020 will feature more than 250 magnificent artworks – from crowd favorites to fragile treasures that are seldom exhibited. It's all being wheeled out for the Met's big birthday bash!

Organized around the Met's transformational moments, the exhibition will reveal the visionary figures and cultural forces that propelled the museum in new directions, from its founding in 1870 to the present day. Rarely seen archival photographs, innovative digital features, and stories from behind the scenes will enhance this unique experience.

Description

Take a trip around the world and back in time, through thousands of pieces of priceless art. The Metropolitan Museum of Art (or The Met) is the largest art museum in the United States. Our mobile ticket gets you three-day, fast-track access to all exhibits at all three Met locations!

Real New Yorkers, passionate art lovers, and tourists in the know all have The Metropolitan Museum of Art high on their list. That's because it's one of the premier museums in the world, and brilliantly organized by theme, so you can focus on the areas you're keen on.

Highlights include the European Paintings area with works from El Greco, Rembrandt, Raphael, van Gogh, and many many more. The Temple of Dendur, a full-sized Egyptian temple donated by Jackie Kennedy (with a view of it through the museum’s glass roof from her apartment) is a spectacular feature of the extensive Egyptian collection.

The Period Rooms are another must-see, with original (or lovingly recreated) examples of interior design throughout the ages. Including a grand salon of Louis XIV, an ancient Roman bedroom buried by the eruption of Vesuvius, fixtures from colonial American homes, and more.

The Egyptian Collection is another hit with all ages. Miniature statues, mummy cases, and even a temple to the goddess Isis.

These are, of course, just suggestions. Wander the collections at your own pace, soaking up the history and wonder.

NOTE: The Met's main location is Fifth Avenue. The nearby (10-minute walk) Met Breuer focuses on art of the 20th and 21st centuries. The Met Cloisters is in Washington Heights' Fort Tryon Park. It showcases medieval European art in religious buildings, transported here piece by piece from Europe.

Insider tip

Once you're full of art, hit up the Rooftop Garden Cafe – it has amazing views of New York and Central Park - especially at sunset!
