The Metropolitan Museum of Art today announced that it will offer unprecedented late-night, final weekend hours to accommodate visitors' extraordinary response to its Costume Institute exhibition, Alexander McQueen: Savage Beauty. The exhibition will remain open until midnight on its last two days -Saturday, August 6 and Sunday, August 7. This is the first time the Museum has kept an exhibition open until midnight.

"We have created these late hours to satisfy the unprecedented interest in this landmark retrospective," said Thomas P. Campbell, Director and CEO of The Metropolitan Museum of Art. "Visitors from across the globe have come to see this remarkable exhibition, and we want to keep it open for as many people as possible. Indeed, these midnight hours will mark a fitting conclusion to this powerful exploration of McQueen's work."

After 9 p.m. on Saturday, and after 5:30 p.m. on Sunday (the regular closing times for the entire Museum), visitors can enter the Met through its 81st Street and Fifth Avenue street-level entrance for a last chance to view the McQueen exhibition, which has attracted nearly 550,000 visitors since it opened on May 4. Weather permitting, the exhibition Anthony Caro on the Roof will be open both Saturday and Sunday evenings until 9 p.m. on the Iris and B. Gerald Cantor Roof Garden. Visitors can buy general admission tickets in advance on the Met's website at www.metmuseum.org.

Throughout the run of the exhibition, Museum Members enjoy express entry to the exhibition, allowing them to skip lines. Also for Members, the Museum opens one hour early each day, except Mondays, from July 22 to August 7, offering exclusive access to the McQueen galleries from 8:30 a.m. until 9:30 a.m.

Alexander McQueen: Savage Beauty is made possible by Alexander McQueenTM.
Additional support is provided in partnership with American Express and Condé Nast.

Anthony Caro on the Roof is made possible by Bloomberg.
Additional support is provided by Cynthia Hazen Polsky and Leon B. Polsky.
