Since becoming Director, I have stressed two priorities: scholarship and accessibility. Our new website, which launched today, certainly embodies both of these aims, featuring complete listings of the Museum's catalogued collections, an interactive map—with descriptions of every gallery in the Main Building and at The Cloisters—suggested itineraries to help you plan your visit, special content for Members, and much more. Of course, favorite sections still remain, like the constantly evolving Heilbrunn Timeline of Art History and Connections, which takes us on personal journeys through the collection.
As a global collection for a global audience, the Met is proud to offer this resource for the millions of people around the world who visit our site each year. Whether you're seeing it for the first time or you've been a fan since our last launch in 1999, I hope the changes we've made bring you to metmuseum.org—and the Met—often.
