The Metropolitan Museum of Art is one of the largest art museums in the world. It was granted the land between East Park drive, Fifth Avenue and the 79th & 85th roads of Central Park in 1871. Calvert Vaux designed the original re-brick and stone 'mausoleum' in collaboration with Jacob Wrey Mould. The high Victorian Gothic style was not well received however as the style had gone out of favour by the time it was the finished.

The Metropolitan Museum of Art is one of the largest art museums in the world. It was granted the land between East Park drive, Fifth Avenue and the 79th & 85th roads of Central Park in 1871. Calvert Vaux designed the original red-brick and stone ‘mausoleum’ in collaboration with Jacob Wrey Mould which is now hidden from view.

In 1894 Richard Morris Hunt began the design for the new central section, which he continued to work on until his death in 1895. His son Richard Howland Hunt then took up the project accompanied by George B. Post and the design was completed in 1902.

The high Victorian Gothic style was not well received however as the style had gone out of favour by the time it was the finished. The project was deemed a ‘mistake’ and within 20 years a new plan which engulfing the old building was built along with many more additions over the years.
