The “Heavenly Bodies” explored the links between fashion and the Catholic Church and
attracted 1.7 million people to the New York Metropolitan Museum of Art.

The museum had a record 7.4 million visitors in 2018, according to the latest numbers released on Friday. It’s one of the major tourist attractions of the Big Apple.

Also of note were exhibitions dedicated to Michelangelo and David Hockney,
both of which took place in late 2017 and early 2018.

The 2018 figures included visitors to the museum’s main building, located
on the eastern side of Central Park facing 5th Avenue, as well as its two
other Manhattan locations, the Met Cloisters, and the Met Breuer.

Attendance did not suffer as a result of a new pricing policy that was
introduced March 1, which broke for the first time the tradition of allowing
everyone to pay however much they wished. Now tourists must pay $25, but if you have a New York ID, you can still get in for a voluntary donation.

32 percent of visitors were New Yorkers, 34 percent from the rest of the United States and 34 percent were foreign tourists. Chinese tourists alone accounted for 5 percent of foreign visitors. The Louvre in Paris counted 10.2 million visitors.
