The Metropolitan Museum of Art boasts a storied architectural history. Originally built in a High Victorian Gothic style with red-brick and stone, the museum was initially unpopular. Twenty years after its completion, the building was already being redesigned. This led to the now well-known Beaux-Arts facade on Fifth Avenue.
