« back to classes page

As the centerpiece of the Met's 150th anniversary celebration, this major exhibition will lead visitors on an immersive, thought-provoking journey through the history of one of the world's preeminent cultural institutions.  Making The Met, 1870–2020 (March 30, 2020 through August 2, 2020) will feature more than 250 superlative works of art of nearly every type, from visitor favorites to fragile treasures that can only be placed on view from time to time.  Organized around transformational moments in the evolution of the Met's collection, buildings, and ambitions, the exhibition will reveal the visionary figures and cultural forces that propelled the Met in new directions from its founding in 1870 to the present day.  Rarely seen archival photographs, innovative digital features, and stories of both behind-the-scenes work and the Met's community outreach will enhance this unique experience.
