Today it became known the number of people who visited Metropolitan Museum in the USA this year. The number is very impressive - 4 million 200 thousand people came to look at the collection of this wonderful museum. For about 40 years, the museum staff has kept statistics on visits, and this year the Metropolitan set a new record. This is the largest attendance of the museum in the last 40 years.
Thomas Campbell - Director of the Metropolitan Museum, believes that the museum has become really famous all over the world, and is one of the most interesting museums in the world. It should be noted that the museum has really expanded its collections. Over the past year, it has been replenished with many paintings by contemporary American artists, as well as paintings by the Renaissance, which aroused the greatest interest among visitors. We wish further success to the museum, and we hope that next year its attendance will also break records.
