The Met Breuer Opens Its Doors
With the opening of The Met Breuer this March, The Metropolitan Museum of Art expands its gallery space dedicated to modern and contemporary art. The building was originally designed by Bauhaus architect Marcel Breuer in 1963 as a home for the Whitney Museum of American Art, which moved to its new downtown home in 2015.
The museum will offer a free audio composition (available to download on March 1 via metmuseum.org ) for the nine-minute walk between The Met Breuer and the main branch of The Metropolitan Museum of Art. Note that admission includes same-day access to both museums, along with The Cloisters farther uptown.
The Whitney has made its new home in the exciting new space designed by architect Renzo Piano. The Whitney is located next to the southern entrance to the High Line and in the middle of the Meatmarket and Chelsea districts of Manhattan. For information and tickets: whitney.org
