Established in 1870, the MET Museum is the world's second-most visited museum, where you can learn, discover, and engage with the art. With over 2 million works in its permanent collection, spread over 17 departments, there is something for everyone. It not only houses artworks, but also has costumes, weapons and armor from across the globe, and an entire floor dedicated exclusively to musical instruments.
The MET also has two other centres located in the city - The Met Breuer and The Met Cloisters.
