The Met and another milestone: Drawings by Michelangelo reaches 500.000 visitors

Attendance at The Metropolitan Museum of Art’s acclaimed exhibition Michelangelo: Divine Draftsman and Designer topped the milestone mark of 500,000 visitors over the weekend.

In the nine weeks since it opened on November 13, 2017, the exhibition has attracted an average of approximately 7,000 people per day. The number represents more than one-third of the total attendance at The Met Fifth Avenue during the same time period.

The exhibition is on view through February 12—just 22 more days, counting today.

This once-in-a-lifetime exhibition presents a stunning group of 133 drawings by Michelangelo—the largest number ever assembled—as well as three of his marble sculptures, his earliest painting, and his wood architectural model for a chapel vault. The works are on loan from 50 public and private collections.
