The Met Breuer is part of the Metropolitan Museum of Art but located separately at 945 Madison Avenue and East 75th Street in the Upper East Side of New York City. It is focused on modern and contemporary art and opened in 2016 in the building formerly occupied by the Whitney Museum of American Art.

After the idea behind the Met Breuer was initiated in 2008, an agreement between the Met and the Whitney was signed in 2011. The location opened in 2016, and the Met operates the museum as part of an integrated expansion of the main museum’s outreach, with a focus on modern art and accessibility.

The Metropolitan Museum of Art main building is on the edge of Central Park along Manhattan’s Museum Mile. A smaller second location, The Cloisters is at Fort Tryon Park in Upper Manhattan; it has an extensive collection of art and architecture from Medieval Europe. A third location is the Met Breuer Museum at Madison Avenue in the Upper East Side. It focuses on the museum’s modern and contemporary art program.

“The secret to so many artists living so long is that every painting is a new adventure.
So, you see, they’re always looking ahead to something new and exciting.
The secret is not to look back.”

– Norman Rockwell
