This event has ended.

The Metropolitan Museum of Art’s American Wing—including The Charles Engelhard Court and the American period rooms—reopened on May 19, 2009. After more than two years of construction and renovation, the unparalleled collections of American furniture, sculpture, stained glass, architectural elements, ceramics, glass, silver, pewter, and jewelry returned to public view. Twelve of the Met’s historic interiors were renovated, reinterpreted, and upgraded to include interactive computer touch screens offering information about the rooms and their furnishings. The opening of the galleries marked the completion of the second of three parts of a project to reconfigure, renovate, and upgrade every section of The American Wing by 2011.
