Today, March 18th, marks the opening of the Met Breuer on Madison Avenue and 75th Street in Manhattan. Named in honor of architect Marcel Breuer, who first built the tremendous space in 1963, the museum will be dedicated to modern and contemporary art.

Originally constructed to house the Whitney Museum of American Art before its recent move downtown, “The reopening of Marcel Breuer’s iconic building on Madison Avenue represents an important chapter in the cultural life of New York City,” said Thomas P. Campbell, Director and CEO of The Met.

The Metropolitan Museum of Art will celebrate its newest residency with a weekend long celebration across all three of its locations, The Met Fifth Avenue, The Met Breuer and The Met Cloisters.

Tickets still available. The Met Breuer, 945 Madison Avenue, New York.
