NYC museums will be able to charge admission now

Jump to last reply

Saw it in the news this morning. The Met and the Musuem of Natural History renewed their leases with the current mayor Bloomberg. He modified the agreement so that they can enforce a ticket price.

Boo....

My daugther and I visited the Met and Coisters on two separate days in March. We paid $10 for a morning at the met and $10 for an hour at Cloisters. (Nearly the recommended ticket price of one day admission to both.) I know we would have skipped the Cloisters if we had been required to pay $25 again.

This summer our church took 30 youth participating in a summer camp to the MoNH. There is no way we could have paid the full cost.

I support museums. Heck I'm on the board of one. I also think that public treasures are for the public to enjoy. When learning of the NY trip I tried to join a museum association with reciprocal memberships so I could support the arts and get in without a wait at the ticket line, but the Met is not part of such a group.

NY won't miss my money. I do wonder however how many school groups will start going to DC rather than NY for field trips?
