 Ensuring a Safe Welcome Back to The Met

The Met Fifth Ave opens August 29.
The Met Cloisters opens September 12.

We are thrilled to welcome our visitors back to The Met after more than five long months of closure. This has been a historic period in our 150 years, and a team of dedicated staff rose to meet the moment, ensuring that our buildings and our art were well cared for throughout. Essential workers guarded our halls, monitored the collection, and protected the well-being of our community. Over the last few weeks, more staff have returned to the Museum to install new exhibitions and prepare for our new safety measures. Thanks to these teams, the Museum is ready to reopen to the public.
