This year, I am saving the $20 and investing it in a cab ride from the Yale Club and when I get to the Met, that painting better be there. They owe me one. You're still going to have to pay the $20 to get in whether it's showing or not. I went with my family in September. All they wanted to do was eat lunch in the basement cafeteria. They weren't going to steal any free looks at the art on the way there. The 2 security guards at the front entrance made it quite clear to us that everyone had to pay the "voluntary" admission fee if they wanted to get in even if all they wanted to do was eat. Needless to say, they left without eating. Now, I'm a museum person so I paid my $20 to get in, but it seems a little bit too high to me get in when all you want to do is eat or see one thing. I'm sure that the Met must take in hundreds of millions a year just in endowments and school groups, not to mention the overpriced food and books, that they could lower the "voluntary" admission to $10 or even $15 without hurting them too much.Sorry to grumble.
