Over the summer, the Metropolitan Museum of Art raised its suggested admission donation to $25. The Museum of Modern Art and our own Boston Museum of Fine Arts have followed suit.
The moves have sparked a number of articles both for and against, and this one from the Art Newspaper website is by far the best, offering a good overview of the questions and challenges that surround the question of what a museum should charge for admission.
What do you think? Do some museums charge too much? Should all museums charge more? Should they all be free?

$25 is too much for sure!!
museums are not commercial institutions and should survive on on funds given by government or individual
museums belong to people 🙂
