Patron Circles | View of a group of ancient Roman sculptures in a dimly lit gallery

From $1,500 to $25,000+

At The Met, we believe that patrons of the arts are as valuable as the art itself. Without Patrons, we would not be able to provide educational programs, create unparalleled exhibitions, or ensure that everyone can appreciate what the Museum has to offer.
