«I'm pleased to announce the launch of the Met app created by the Museum's Digital Media Department. This free digital resource is the easiest way for the Met community, both local and global, to stay current with what's happening at the Museum every day—wherever you are.»

The app allows users to swipe freely to find information about both the Main Building and The Cloisters, including current exhibitions, opening hours, collection highlights, admission details, activities for families, and much more. It also includes the Met's Twitter feed and a special section just for Members.

One of the app's special features is a fresh, playful perspective on the Met's collection through themed lists of objects including: "Grand Spaces and Hidden Nooks," "Animals: See One, Be One," "Hidden in Plain Sight," "Medieval Love," and "Met-Staches." The Museum's popular Artwork of the Day is also included.

The Met app is available on iPhone, iPod Touch, and iPad, and can be downloaded free from the App Store. It is made possible through the support of Bloomberg Philanthropies.

Download the app.
