The Met, Anywhere: Online Resources

Art has the power to connect us, to calm us during times of stress, and to build communities. While The Met, like other cultural institutions, has temporarily closed its doors to help fight the spread of COVID-19, we want the public to know that we remain committed to our mission to connect people all over the world to creativity, knowledge, and ideas.

In the coming weeks, we will continue to provide you with inspiring ways to connect and engage with both the art in our collection and the Museum as a whole. We hope you enjoy the selections below. #MetAnywhere
