How popular has the Metropolitan Museum of Art‘s “Alexander McQueen: Savage Beauty” exhibition been? If you need to ask, then maybe it will tell you something that, for the third time since the show opened in May, the museum has extended its hours and overall schedule to accommodate the record number of visitors who have been clamoring to get in. This time around, they’re apparently planning for a big batch of procrastinators, as they’ve announced extensions during the final week of the exhibition. From August 4th to the 7th (it was originally slated to close a week earlier), the Met will stay open until until 9pm each night. For members, the museum will begin opening up an hour early as of July 22nd and remain that way until the exhibition wraps up. Last, the Met has announced that they will be continuing the $50 per ticket special viewings on Monday, when the museum is usually closed. So if you’re not one of the 450,000+ people who have already seen the McQueen show, here’s your chance to make it before it all wraps up. Or until they extend it again.
