New Installations

In addition to temporary special exhibitions, the Museum often presents new installations of permanent collection galleries that have been renovated or reconfigured based on new scholarship, acquisitions, or research.


MetCollects invites the public for an intimate look at some of the hundreds of works of art that the Met acquires each year. These exciting new additions are introduced by the curators who proposed them for the Met's collection.


Works of art in the Museum's collections are on display in more than four hundred numbered galleries throughout the Main Building and The Cloisters. Overview descriptions of the galleries are organized by curatorial department to help you plan your visit.


Connections invites the Met's diverse staff to offer their personal perspectives on works of art in the Museum's vast collection. Their voices range from the authoritative to the highly subjective, and touch upon any number of themes and concepts. Connections was a 2011 year-long series comprising of 100 episodes, and inspires fresh ways to approach art.
