The Met 360° Project

In 2016, The Met's Digital Department shot a series of six short videos with a 360° camera rig at its three locations: The Met Fifth Avenue, The Met Breuer, and The Met Cloisters. Our goal? To invite new and existing Met fans to "visit" the Museum's art and architecture in a fresh, immersive way.

Each video offers new and dynamic access to some of the Museum's iconic spaces with a perspective typically unavailable to the public. Viewers can experience the magic of standing in an empty gallery after-hours, witnessing a bustling space in time-lapse, or floating high above The Met Cloisters for a bird's-eye view. We strung cables, removed protective bonnets covering works of art, and rigged cameras up high, all to allow viewers to explore The Met as never before.
