Ever before the Whitney moved to its Meatpacking District location, plans were afoot for The Metropolitan Museum of Art to take over the Whitney’s former Marcel Breuer-designed home on Madison Avenue. Breuer’s name graces what’s basically an entirely new institution intended to make the Met’s a major player in the current art scene: In addition to housing the Met’s collection of modern and contemporary art, the museum mounts major exhibitions of recent artists.

The Met Breuer is NOT open late on Thursdays. The information here is incorrect.


The Met Breuer is a great way if you have about an hour or two to kill in the Upper East Side. Entry into this museum will grant you entry to the Met and vice versa. I really liked how much smaller and intimate this gallery is. The exhibitions that I got to see at the end of August were a lot of fun. I especially liked the floor that contained unfinished art work by well-artists. I definitely recommend it if you had some extra time.
