2. There’s Are Two Art Galleries Inside the Met Opera House

In the wings just off Founder’s Hall on the lower level of the Met Opera house there are two art galleries that are fairly unknown to most visitors. Currently, you can see the exhibit “The New Met: A West Side Story” that details the history of moving the Met Opera to Lincoln Center, with large reproductions of the never built plans on display along with many vintage photographs. The other gallery is exhibiting “Portraits from the Archives of the Metropolitan Opera” showing some of the Met’s greatest personalities in the form of paintings, sculptures, drawings and photographs.
