The Metropolitan Museum of Art is among the most-visited institutions across the globe, and is home to many of the world’s most influential pieces of art. During our 2-hour Met After Dark tour, we’ll get the chance to see the museum in the rare beauty of evening light, as the crowds dissipate for the day. We’ll explore selected works in the museum’s collection with an expert in art history, whose specialized knowledge and tailored approach will help bring these artworks to life.
Met Museum at Night
We’ll begin the tour with a sunset viewing of the Temple of Dendur, exploring the monumental temple as if on the shore of the Nile at dusk. We’ll then work our way through the American Wing, where the building’s original copper lights illuminate the wing’s emblematic golden Diana sculpture.
Depending on the group’s interests, we’ll weave our way through tucked corridors to discover some of the museum’s most beautiful hidden gems, like a Ming Dynasty garden, larger-than-life Rodin sculptures, and starlit Roman busts.
No matter what your interest or level of expertise, our expert art historian will ensure you’ll leave the museum with a deeper understanding of the collections and better tools to view art, all in time for dinner!
