START SPREADING THE NEWS – NEW YORK CITY , NEW YORK – THE METROPOLITAN MUSEUM OF ART – BREUER

FB_IMG_1503757029082FB_IMG_1503757034003FB_IMG_1503757041924FB_IMG_1503757038287FB_IMG_1503757046587It’s  located  at  945  Madison  Avenue  on 75th  Street  on the  Upper  East  Side .

It’s  the branch  of  the  Metropolitan  Museum  of  Art  that  not  too  many  people  know  about ,  if really  at all.

While  the  other  two  branches  of  the  Metropolitan ,  the  main  branch  on Fifth  Avenue  and The  Cloisters ,  focus  on  medieval  and art throughout  the  ages ,  this  branch  focuses  mainly  on modern  and contemporary  art.

Like  the  Metropolitan  Museum  of  Art ,  the Breuer  is open  every  day .

You might  want  to  go  on Friday  or Saturday  because  the  museum  is  open  until  9pm .

Like  the  other  two  branches  of  the  Metropolitan ,  which  I’ll  talk  about  in another  post ,  the  Breuer  has a  suggested  price  of   $25 .

Notice  that  I  said  suggested  price .

You don’t  have  to  pay that  amount  if you don’t  choose  to .

If you  buy  your  ticket  at the  Met  on Fifth  Avenue ,  you  can  get  free admission  if you to the  Breuer  or the  Cloisters  on the same  day .

Just  remember  to  keep  your  ticket  from  the  Metropolitan  so you can  show  them  at the  cashier’s  desk when you  walk  in .

The  museum  has five  floors ,  but on the  day that  I  visited ,  only  two  floors  were  being  used  because  the exhibits  that were on the  fourth  and  fifth  floor  had ended  all ready .

Now let me  say that  I’m  not  the  biggest  fan  of  contemporary  art  and design ,  and I  wasn’t  exactly  impressed  with some of  the  exhibits  that I  saw  here .

I did ,  however ,  love one of the videos  from the exhibition  called ,  ”  The  Body  Politic  “, which sadly, is going  to  close the day before Labor  Day .

If you’re  a fan of Modern and Contemporary  Art  and Design ,  by all means ,  make  the Metropolitan  Museum  –  Breuer  a stop  on your  own  30  Plus  Teams  Tour  of  New  York  City .
