Metropolitan Museum Sued Over “Suggested” Entry Fee

Claiming fraud, two Metropolitan Museum of Art members filed a lawsuit in the New York State Supreme Court yesterday alleging that the historically free, public institution has been deceiving visitors into paying entry fees.

We have to say it’s not just the sign, or lack thereof, that makes one pay a “suggested fee.” Sometimes it’s just guilt. But with the “fiscal cliff” looming, we can’t say we totally disagree with the plaintiffs.
