Met Museum Sets New Attendance Record
with More Than 7.35 Million Visitors
Highest Fiscal Year Attendance in The Met’s Recorded History
(New York, July, 2018)—The Metropolitan Museum of Art announced that it welcomed more than 7.35 million visitors to its three locations—The Met Fifth Avenue, The Met Cloisters, and The Met Breuer—in the fiscal year that ended on June 30 (FY18). It is the highest fiscal year attendance in the Museum’s recorded history and is due in large part to the record-breaking attendance for Michelangelo: Divine Draftsman and Designer, which was on view from November 13, 2017 through February 12, 2018 and brought in 702,516 visitors. The exhibition is now the 10th most attended show in the Museum’s history.
