America’s premier art museum, The Metropolitan Museum of Art, was founded in 1870. One of the architectural glories of New York City, The Met stretches four blocks along Fifth Avenue with over two million objects under one roof. The museum is a dazzling three-dimensional encyclopedia of world art, radiating 5,000 years of art history. In this stunning production, the masterpieces of The Met come to life through high-definition videography and insightful interviews with Museum Director Philippe de Montebello and the museum’s dedicated curatorial staff.
