    Thanks so much! That’s great that you were able to visit the Cloisters. You’re right – too few people make it there and it’s well worth the visit.

    The recommended …
    The recommended price for students is $12. However, the Met participates in several programs that include free admission for students. All New York City public school students, along with students from Bard Graduate Center, Barnard College, Columbia University, and the Institute of Fine Arts at New York University, may visit the Museum for free. Please check with your school administrator to see if your student ID allows free admission to the Museum.

    I’m not entirely sure but you would most likely have to pay. I’m in an Art highschool and my Art teacher told me that its free for public highschool students. All you have to do is show your ID card.

    But since you are in college you might have to pay the usual $25 ike everybody else that isnt a high school student. Thats what my teacher told me. I’m gonna go one of these days cause its only a few blocks from my school

    Great Museums is very appreciative of the advertisers who make watching GREAT MUSEUMS free on YouTube possible — and we think some of their ads are pretty creative!

In September, it will be A World of Art: The Metropolitan Museum of Art. We hope you enjoy it!
