Opening its doors in 1872, The Metropolitan Museum of Art (The Met) is an art museum on the edge of Central Park in New York City, and remains one of the world’s largest art galleries.
Approximately a quarter mile long, with two million square feet of floor space, the museum contains over two million art works from many era and many countries all over the globe.
In my university classes in Integrated Arts here in Florida, I teach a variety of art genres, and no other museum affords my students a greater variety of art works than The Met.
There are two particular websites that I highly recommend to my students. Just like at the museum itself, one can get lost inside this virtual paradise for art lovers. The websites are both Met sites:
It is well worth the visit!
