The Metropolitan Museum of Art

About The Metropolitan Museum of Art

The Met presents over 5,000 years of art from around the world for everyone to experience and enjoy. The Museum lives in two iconic sites in New York City—The Met Fifth Avenue and The Met Cloisters. Millions of people also take part in The Met experience online.

Since it was founded in 1870, The Met has always aspired to be more than a treasury of rare and beautiful objects. Every day, art comes alive in the Museum's galleries and through its exhibitions and events, revealing both new ideas and unexpected connections across time and across cultures.

“I loved meeting people from all around the world and sharing their love of art as well as my own. I loved my co-workers and having the experience to work around beautiful art constantly. To be in the museum before it opened and sometimes get first looks at exhibitions was definitely a plus to the job experience as well. ”
