How to visit safely

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.

All admission tickets include entry to exhibitions as well as same-day entry to both Met locations. 

Who should make a reservation?

  • Members
  • New York State residents
  • NY, NJ and CT students
  • Anyone with a CityPASS, New York Pass, or Explorer Pass
  • Anyone with another type of voucher or admission pass
