Metropolitan Museum of Art Revises Admission Charge

The Metropolitan Museum of Art announced that, effective July 1, for reasons of economic necessity, the price of museum admission will rise to a recommended $25 for adults, $17 for seniors and $12 for students. The rates are currently $20, $15, and $10, respectively. This marks the first admissions increase in five years.

The Museum pointed out that admission to the Met will continue to be free to all children under 12 years of age, as well as to student groups from all New York City schools that reserve their visits in advance. In addition, the museum’s longstanding policy of including all special exhibitions free with the purchase of a general museum admission will continue unchanged. The Museum’s Education Department will also continue to provide free meeting space and facilitate workshops for the City’s Department of Education and curriculum specialists.
