About Metropolitan Museum of Art - Great Hall

Metropolitan Museum of Art - Great Hall Tickets

The Great Hall is the majestic main entry to the The Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York City. When the museum opened to the public in December 1902, the Evening Post newspaper reported that at last New York had a neoclassical palace of art, “one of the finest in the world, and the only public building in recent years which approaches in dignity and grandeur the museums of the old world.” Architect Richard Morris Hunt, who was one of the founding trustees of the Metropolitan and the most fashionable architect of his day, designed both the museum’s classical Beaux-Arts Fifth Avenue façade and the Great Hall, which now greets more than five million visitors each year.
