About the Metropolitan Museum of Art

The Metropolitan Museum of Art is not only the largest in New York - it’s one of the biggest in America. Referred to as the “Met” by most, this massive building is over a century old.

The building houses more than two million art pieces and features permanent collections from around the world. The Met also has a massive film archive. 

Fun fact: since January 2020, the Met has started uploading these films to their YouTube channel once a week.
