The Metropolitan Museum of Art

(0) Price:

n 1872, the museum’s trustees hired a young architect named Richard Morris Hunt to design their new headquarters. Hunt was just 28 years old when he began his career as an architect at that time. He had studied architecture under Stanford White and later worked for McKim, Mead & White.

The building is considered one of America’s finest examples of Beaux-Arts style. The exterior features a limestone facade with Corinthian columns and pilasters on the first floor, while the second-floor windows are framed by cast iron balconies.

The interior has an elaborate marble staircase that leads to the main entrance at the top of the tower. The lobby was designed in the neoclassical style, featuring a large central fountain and several other smaller fountains.
