Metropolitan Museum of Art

Engage directly with the art and special exhibits of this world-renowned museum! Exhibiting art from ancient to contemporary times, the museum is a great place to get a full-spectrum artistic experience. Thematic guided visits such as Exploring Art Across Cultures, Symbols and Secrets, Egyptian Art, Musical Instruments and others help build strong content knowledge about the art on display. Learn about periods of history through art with extensive lesson-plan programming. Groups can also put the inspiration they garner from the museum to work at K-12 Studio Art Workshops, where students, scouts and campers create unique sculptural creations to take home with them.
