NYC's Metropolitan Museum of Art plans to reopen in mid-August

The Metropolitan Museum of Art announced plans to reopen to the public in mid-August or “perhaps a few weeks later,” according to a statement released Tuesday.

The museum says that the opening is being planned in tandem with New York State’s cautious, phased plan for reopening the city as coronavirus cases retreat.

“The Met has endured much in its 150 years, and today continues as a beacon of hope for the future,” President Daniel H. Weiss wrote in a letter.

“This museum is also a profound reminder of the strength of the human spirit and the power of art to offer comfort, inspiration, and community.”

“As we endure these challenging and uncertain times, we are encouraged by looking forward to the day when we can once again welcome all to enjoy The Met’s collection and exhibitions.”

The Met shut down on March 13 and more than 80 employees were laid off. The institution may face a staggering $150 million shortfall.

When it reopens, museum officials said, the days and hours in which visitors will be welcomed are likely to be reduced, “given the need to provide an environment that respects social distance requirements”.

The MET will not have tours, talks, concerts, or events through calendar year 2020.

The museum expects to resume these activities in 2021, including a belated celebration of its 150th anniversary.
