Viewing Artwork at the Metropolitan Art Museum for One Low Price

Museum in nyc

It doesn’t take a lot of money to view amazing art sculptures and paintings, especially if you live near a major city. Many museums in ny and other surrounding states are offering people the chance to visit a number of fine art museums for an extremely reduced rate, or in some cases for free.

The idea to offer people the chance to visit the art museum for free came from the Metropolitan Art Museum. The Metropolitan Art Museum has had a long standing tradition of allowing individuals to choose their own admission fee for the museum. People who visit the Metropolitan Art Museum are encouraged to make a donation in an amount that they feel they can afford. The recommended amount is 25 dollars, but some people pay less and some people pay more.

Other museums, such as the Museum of Modern Art and the Museum of Arts boston have taken on this reduced admission fee. Some of these museums have the reduced fee that is similar to the Metropolitan Art Museum, while others have full days dedicated to free admission.

For example, Chicago Art Institute offers a number of free days to the public. These free days are on specific dates that can be found on the official museum’s website. People can visit the museum, see cool artwork, and all for one low price.

The idea behind offering a low admission fee is so that people can feel excited about art. Many people are reluctant to visit art museums because of the high admission price, but if the museums offer admission for free people might come and view the amazing sculptures that are available for viewing.

Whether you are visiting the Metropolitan Art Museum or the Chicago Art Institute, there are hundreds of paintings and sculptures you can view. And the best part is you can pay next to nothing to view them!
