The Metropolitan Museum of Art
The Metropolitan Museum of Art was founded on April 13, 1870, "to be located in the City of New York, for the purpose of establishing and maintaining in said city a Museum and library of art, of encouraging and developing the study of the fine arts, and the application of arts to manufacture and practical life, of advancing the general knowledge of kindred subjects, and, to that end, of furnishing popular instruction."
The work of the Metropolitan Museum reflects the global scope of its collections and extends across the world through a variety of initiatives and programs outlined here, including exhibitions, excavations, fellowships, professional exchanges, conservation projects, and traveling works of art.
