(New York, January 4, 2018)—The Metropolitan Museum of Art announced today a revised admissions policy. Under the updated policy, which received approval from New York City's Department of Cultural Affairs, admission for residents of New York State and students from New Jersey and Connecticut will continue to be pay-as-you-wish, and visitors from outside New York State will be required to pay a mandatory admission fee. The Met projects that the updated policy will affect 31 percent of all Museum visitors. The Met also announced that it will honor full-price admissions tickets for three consecutive days, giving visitors more time to experience each of the Museum's three locations. All children under 12 will continue to be admitted for free. The Museum is now developing guidelines and practices for the revised policy, which will be implemented on March 1, 2018.

Mandatory admission for visitors from outside New York State will match the current suggested admissions prices: $25 for adults, $17 for seniors, and $12 for students. Admission for all children under 12 will remain free. Special exhibitions, guided tours, and gallery talks will also continue to be free with Museum admission.
