Museum Website

For a century and a half, the Metropolitan Museum has been building a world-class collection of art and artifacts from around the world, across time.  Seventeen curatorial departments study, exhibit, and care for the objects in the Museum's collection.

One of the world's largest art museums, includes American art and decorative arts, European, African, Asian, Ancient Egyptian, Roman and Greek art, Byzantine and Islamic art, and modern art. The Museum's comprehensive collection of medieval and Byzantine art is displayed in both the Main Building and in the northern Manhattan satellite location, The Cloisters museum and gardens.

The Museum mounts dozens of special, temporary exhibitions.  It was the Met that invented the "blockbuster" exhibition.
