The final days of the Metropolitan Museum of Art’s “Alexander McQueen: Savage Beauty” are creeping up, so the met is giving us a little more time with it, and allowing people who have jobs a chance to view the retrospective without the aggravating tourist-heavy weekend crowd. After already extending the exhibit an extra week to August 7, the museum just announced they’re adding extended hours for the celebrated exhibit’s last four days.
From Thursday, August 4 to Sunday, August 7, the museum will remain open to the public until 9pm. (The Museum normally closes at 5:30pm on Thursdays and Sundays.)
For museum members only, the Met will open its doors an hour early (8:30am) every day except Monday, beginning July 22.
Since May 4, the exhibit has drawn over 400,000 visitors and that number will probably rise in these final weeks. We haven’t heard a single negative review from this epic retrospective and definitely recommended going if you haven’t already. For more information, go to metmuseum.org.
