Beginning March 1, 2018, The Metropolitan Museum of Art will update its admissions policy. Keep reading to see if and how it affects you.
“With this update, our pay-as-you-wish policy will continue for New York State residents and students from across the tri-state region, while visitors from outside New York will be required to pay mandatory admissions; admission for children under 12 will remain free. The Museum will also now honor full-priced admissions tickets for three consecutive days, giving all visitors more time to experience each of The Met’s three locations.
“As we studied how best to update our policy, we were mindful that the Museum was founded in the 19th century primarily as an educational entity intended to teach and uplift the diverse populations of New York City. We are still a vital community resource, and each year our educators reach more than 200,000 students. We take enormous pride in our leadership role within the city’s cultural landscape, and we are committed to remaining a welcoming place for all the constituent communities of New York.”
