Scaling the Mission: The Met Collection API

Today, The Metropolitan Museum of Art launches a new public API for the collection. Through The Met Collection API, users can connect to a live feed of all Creative Commons Zero (CC0) data and 406,000 images from the The Met collection, all available for use without copyright or restriction. The Met Collection API is another foundational step in our Open Access program, helping make the Museum's collection one of the most accessible, discoverable, and useful on the internet. The Met Collection API is where all makers, creators, researchers, and dreamers can now connect to the most up-to-date data and images of artworks in The Met collection, representing five thousand years of human history.

Adding an Image Download Button to Google Arts & Culture

In recognition of this important milestone in The Met and Google Art & Culture's work together, and to better serve The Met's strategic goals, the Google Arts & Culture team also collaborated with us on two important updates to GA&C.
  1. An image-download button has been added to The Met's CC0 images on GA&C so that users can download a high-res image of any public-domain artwork in The Met collection. This is a first for GA&C, and brings one of the most popular features on The Met's website to users of GA&C.
  2. A prominent "Learn More" feature has also been added, which links GA&C back to The Met's website. This provides a clear and simple pathway from GA&C for users to access the canonical source of information about the artwork on our website.
