New York City’s Metropolitan Museum of Art announced that it plans to reopen to the public on Aug. 29.
“The Museum has been closed since March 13, 2020, and had previously not been closed for more than three days in over a century,” the Met said in a statement announcing the reopening.
There will be members-only days on Aug. 27-28 before the full reopening.
When the Met reopens, its Fifth Avenue building will be open five days a week, Thursday through Monday. The building will be open 10 a.m. until 5 p.m. local time on Saturdays, Sundays and Monday, and there will be later hours — 12 p.m. to 7 p.m. — on Thursdays and Fridays.
The Met Cloisters, its uptown museum in Fort Tryon Park, will open in September.
