See artworks in the Metropolitan Museum's collection that were courageously saved by the Monuments Men, a group of unlikely heroes culled from the art world who risked their lives to preserve Europe's cultural treasures during World War II.
For year two of the Museum's Artist in Residence program, we partner with Alarm Will Sound, one of the most creative ensembles working today. Members of Alarm Will Sound have assembled the following itinerary based on musical inspirations and connections between the pieces they will perform and works in the Met's permanent collection.
From ancient Egypt to Medieval Europe to Africa, Oceania, and then on to the classical world of the Ancient Greeks and Romans, you will encounter works that reflect humankind's highest achievements.
This itinerary is also available as an Audio Guide in English, French, German, Italian, Japanese, Korean, Mandarin, and Spanish.
Discover extraordinary holdings from throughout Asia, one of the world's finest collections of old master paintings from Europe, the art of the Ancient Near East, and beloved masterpieces of Impressionist, post-Impressionist, and modern art.
If the Metropolitan Museum is so big to you that it seems a continent, then how about seeing it one "country" at a time? Start with Egypt!
Our youngest visitors can discover the Met at their own speed, one nook and cranny at a time.
Capturing the Museum's depth and breadth, this itinerary will lead you through galleries that range from quietly intimate and personal to dramatic and awe inspiring.
Two members of our staff designed this itinerary to reflect their favorite works in our collection as well as those of our visitors.
Explore the collection via the What's Your Met? itinerary, which features objects handpicked by celebrities.
