And they filed a lawsuit? Three visitors and one resident of New York are suing the museum saying they did not understand the museum’s “pay-as-you-go” policy. Really?

As part of a deal with the city (which supports many museums), the museum must have some days and times when admission is by donation.

The Metropolitan Museum of Art has posted signs with a recommended admission of $25. In the fine print, the details are explained. The museum has said they are complying with the city’s requirements.

This story inspired an artful discussion.
