Known simply as "The Met" around town, New York City's Metropolitan Museum of Art is one of the nation's foremost cultural institutions, serving guests both domestic and foreign since 1872. The museum is the most visited in America, but the building can accommodate plenty of visitors as it occupies a quarter-mile stretch of Manhattan's Museum Mile.
Overlooking Central Park, The Met contains over two million works of art which are distributed throughout nineteen curatorial departments. Their collection spans styles from all over the world, and is one of the most comprehensive in existence.
