Reserve a time to visit The Met

New York State residents and NY, NJ, CT students, the amount you pay for tickets is up to you. You may purchase your suggested admission tickets at a Met admissions desk with a valid ID.

Continue to reserve a date and time below if you are a Member, if you want to purchase a suggested admission ticket, or if you have a voucher or pass to enter the Museum.

This reservation only allows access to the Museum at the specified date and time; it is not your ticket to the Museum. You must either show your Membership card, purchase a ticket, or redeem a voucher or pass for admission to the galleries after you arrive at the Museum. If you are looking to purchase timed tickets for the Museum please see here.

Your admission ticket provides same-day entry to both Met locations. There are no additional costs or timed tickets for exhibitions. There may be a line to enter exhibition spaces to maintain physical distancing. Exhibitions may also be closed to additional visitors toward the end of the day.
