The Metropolitan Museum of Art

The Metropolitan Museum of Art is a renowned art museum in New York City. Its permanent collection contains more than two million works, divided into nineteen curatorial departments.The main building, located on the eastern edge of Central Park along Manhattan’s Museum Mile, is one of the world’s largest art galleries. There is also a much smaller second location at “The Cloisters” in Upper Manhattan that features medieval art.

Created in 1870, the Met now has more than two million works of art from around the world and from ancient through modern times. You will find everything from Islamic art and European paintings to collections of arms and armor. For example, you can find daggers and swords made by Rai Kunitoshi, one of the most famous Japanese swordsmiths.

Represented in the permanent collection are works of art from classical antiquity and Ancient Egypt, paintings and sculptures from nearly all the European masters, and an extensive collection of American and modern art. The Met also maintains extensive holdings of African, Asian, Oceanic, Byzantine, and Islamic art. The museum is also home to encyclopedic collections of musical instruments, costumes and accessories, and antique weapons and armor from around the world. Several notable interiors, ranging from 1st-century Rome through modern American design, are permanently installed in the Met’s galleries.
