The Metropolitan Museum of Art, which is colloquially known as The Met, is an art museum in New York City. Its permanent collection contains more than two million works which is divided into nineteen curatorial departments. The main building is located on the eastern edge of Central Park along Manhattan’s Museum Mile. The main building is one of the largest art galleries of the world. There is also a second location which is much smaller at “The Cloisters” in Upper Manhattan that features medieval art.

Represented in the permanent collection are works of art from classical antiquity and Ancient Egypt, paintings and sculptures from nearly all the European masters and an extensive collection of American and modern art. The Met also maintains extensive holdings of African, Asian, Oceanic, Byzantine and Islamic art.  The museum is also home to encyclopedic collections of musical instruments, costumes and accessories, and antique weapons and armor from around the world. Several notable interiors, ranging from first century Rome through modern American design, are permanently installed in the Met’s galleries.

The Metropolitan Museum of Art was founded in eighteen hundred and seventy by a group of American citizens. The founders included businessmen and financiers, as well as leading artists and thinkers of the day, whose aim was to bring art and art education to the American people. The museum opened on February twentieth of eighteen hundred and seventy two and was originally located at six hundred and eighty one Fifth Avenue.  As of now, the Met measures almost quarter mile long and has an area of two billion square feet. The Met’s permanent collection is cared for and exhibited by seventeen separate curatorial departments, each with a specialized staff of curators and scholars, as well as four dedicated conservation departments and a department of scientific research.
