Visit to the Metropolitan Museum of Art at New York City. Last week I visited the Metropolitan Museum of Art at New York City. This museum, also known as The Met is a huge building with nineteen departments and around two billion art pieces stored and displayed in its art galleries.
The National Museum of the United States Air Force got its start in 1923 as a small exhibit of World War I aircraft at Dayton's McCook Field. When Wright Field opened a few years later, the museum moved to this new aviation research center. Initially housed in a lab building, the museum moved to its first permanent home, built by the Works Progress Administration, in 1935.
