Directions to the Met

Directions to the Classroom once at the Metropolitan Museum of Art

Directions: Please meet at the Uris Educational entrance which is just south of the main entrance at about 5th Ave and 80th Street.  You will not need a ticket to access the conference room.  Once past security, follow signs in the Uris Center for the “Studio Classroom”.  It is on the same level as the Uris Educational entrance, and is just past the ticket purchasing desks. 

Eric will meet people promptly at 5:30 near the coat rack at the entrance.  Stragglers can find their own way to the classroom by asking for help.  There are plenty of staff in that area that can point the way. Why not get there early and enjoy art?
