A Grateful Acknowledgment
To the City: For more than a century the City of New York and the Trustees of The Metropolitan Museum of Art have
been partners in bringing the Museum’s services to the public. The complex of buildings in Central Park is the property
of the City, and the City provides for the Museum’s heat, light, and power. The City also pays for approximately onethird the costs of maintenance and security for the facility and its collections. The collections themselves are held in trust
by the Trustees. The Trustees, in turn, are responsible for meeting all expenses connected with conservation, education,
special exhibitions, acquisitions, scholarly publications, and related activities, including security costs not covered by
the City.
To the State: The State of New York again provided valuable support through the New York State Council on the Arts and
the De p a rtment of Ec onomic De velopment.
To the Federal Government: Funding from the Congress of the United States for the restoration of the Museum’s landmarked facade, through the Department of Housing and Urban Development and continued funding from the Institute
of Museum and Library Services and the National Endowment of the Arts.
Aid from these sources, combined with the generosity of many of our visitors and friends, helps the Metropolitan to
serve the public in accordance with its traditional standards of excellence.
Recent Acquisitions, 2003–2004, published by the Museum as the Fall 2004 Bulletin, is a companion to this Annual Report. For those who do not receive
Recent Acquisitions, copies of this special volume may be purchased in the Museum bookshop.

Report from the Director and
the President
T
he Metropolitan Museum of Art is known as a place
where the art of the past is cared for, studied, and displayed, but it is also a living entity that must evolve with
the times. This evolution encompasses such diverse activities as
acquiring works of art to strengthen the collection; enhancing
installations; creating new galleries from unused or obsolete
spaces within the building; refurbishing public areas; expanding
programming for audio guides; adding new images and features
to the Museum’s Web site; outfitting our auditoriums with stateof-the-art equipment; improving dining facilities; equipping the
new admissions desks in the Great Hall with new technology;
cleaning the facade of grime that had accumulated for more than
a century; upgrading the building’s electric and mechanical infras t ru c t u re; and installing more extensive and sophisticated security
systems. Work in all of these areas continued during the past yea r.
Last fall, a new gallery for the display of the Museum’s collection of Italian Renaissance bronzes—one that is unsurpassed in
the United States but that had not been on view in five years—
opened adjacent to the Vélez Blanco Patio. At The Cloisters, the
reconstructed twelfth-century cloister from St.-Guilhem-leDésert reopened after nearly two years of construction and repair
work. Winter saw the opening of four reinstalled galleries for
Egyptian art, the highlight of which was the reconfiguration of
the Old Kingdom tombs of Perneb and Raemkai to more closely
resemble their original settings. In addition to enhancing the display by introducing more natural light and new cases, a main
objective was to create a more compelling and informative introduction to the Museum’s outstanding collection of Egyptian art.
As we have noted in past reports, designs for new galleries for
Hellenistic, Etruscan, and Roman art have been under way. In
February, we officially launched the “21st-Century Met” plan.
This building-from-within program includes transforming the
space that previously housed the public restaurant into a lightfilled atrium that will become the new Leon Levy and Shelby
White Court for Roman and Etruscan art. Because this construction necessitates the temporary closing of exhibition space and
other areas in the same wing, it presents a unique opportunity to
undertake a series of overdue interior construction projects.
These include adding 9,000 square feet of new gallery space for
nineteenth-century art, modern art, and modern photography
directly above the Oceanic galleries; redesigning and reinstalling
the Islamic galleries; and substantially upgrading the Ruth and
Harold D. Uris Center for Education, which will create greatly
improved facilities for school groups and a 300-seat auditorium,
among other features. Some improvements to the Uris Center
have already been made, including a new entrance from the
garage and temporary student assembly areas. We also will be
renovating much of the American Wing, at the north end of the
Museum.
All the new spaces will be contained within the existing building. Upon completion of construction, the Museum will remain
4
within its current footprint, and the fountain on the southern
end of the Fifth Avenue plaza will have been restored with new
piping. We do not expect this work to inconvenience visitors or
disrupt traffic on Fifth Avenue.
Before embarking on detailed design work, the Museum
obtained the approval of all appropriate City agencies. A lawsuit
brought last fall by a small number of neighbors seeking to halt
or delay the projects was dismissed by the trial court in the
spring; this decision is being appealed. These neighbors expressed
concern that the number of visitors to the Museum will greatly
increase when the renovations are complete; we do not expect
this to be the case. Attendance has remained fairly steady over
many years—ranging from a high of 5.3 million visitors to the
main building in 1996–97, to a low of 4.1 million visitors in
2001–2—despite the opening of several new galleries and highly
popular exhibitions. Attendance in the main building for
2003–4 was 4.5 million visitors.
The purpose of the great major ity of these projects is, of
course, to improve the galleries in which works of art are displayed and enjoyed by our visitors, whether these works are part
of the permanent collection or on loan for a special exhibition.
The Metropolitan is exceedingly fortunate to be able to mount
major exhibitions that provide opportunities for advancing scholarship while also delighting the eye. A noteworthy example was
“Byzantium: Faith and Power (1261–1557),” seven years in the
making, which brought together more than 350 masterpieces of
Byzantine art from some thirty nations. These extraordinary
works, some seen rarely and others never before shown outside
the churches and monasteries that have preserved them through
succeeding centuries, are among their countries’ most revered
treasures. The first major exhibition devoted solely to the great
artistic flowering of the late Byzantine period, it was also the last
in a series of three exhibitions at the Metropolitan focusing on
specific eras in the history of Byzantium.
Italian painting as it developed in post-Renaissance Lombardy
was the subject of “Painters of Reality: The Legacy of Leonardo
and Caravaggio in Lombardy,” documenting the region’s distinctive emphasis on observation of the natural world from the
fifteenth century through the eighteenth century. Through
Caravaggio, this naturalist approach came to Rome and became
of key importance to Baroque art there and throughout Europe.
The exhibition marked the first time that this great school of
Italian painting was presented in the United States in such depth.
A landmark retrospective of El Greco, the first in more than
twenty years, was a highlight of the fall season. One of the most
original artists of the sixteenth century, El Greco sought to create
a new and spiritually more intense relationship between the
viewer and image. In his time El Greco’s highly personal style
often astonished his contemporaries, but it is only in the last 150
years that he has come to be appreciated as one of the great
creative geniuses of Western art. The exhibition was organized by
the Metropolitan and the National Gallery, London, with contributions to the catalogue by an international team of scholars.
Another retrospective celebrated Childe Hassam, a pioneer of
American Impressionism. Recognized for his brilliant handling
of color and light, Hassam became the foremost chronicler of
New York City at the turn of the twentieth century. He was
unusual among the American Impressionists for his frequent
depictions of burgeoning cities and is perhaps best known for his
series of paintings showing flag-draped Fifth Avenue during
World War I.
“The Douglas Di l l on Legacy: Chinese Painting for the
Metropolitan Museum” was a fitting tribute to the foresight and
generosity of the Museum’s former president, who later also
served as chairman of the board of trustees. Thanks to Douglas
Dillon’s sustained support, the Museum was able to create one
of the world’s preeminent collections of Chinese paintings and
calligraphy, of which more than sixty examples were on view in
this exhibition.
For the first time, The Costume Institute and the Department
of European Sculpture and Decorative Arts collaborated on an
exhibition in The Wrightsman Galleries, the Museum’s French
period rooms. “Dangerous Liaisons: Fashion and Furniture in
the 18th Century” focused on dress and its interplay with art,
furniture, and the broader decorative arts in France between
1723 and 1789. Featuring a rarely seen collection of men’s and
women’s clothing displayed on mannequins arranged in amusing
vignettes, the exhibition provided a witty gloss on the mores of
aristocratic life in the decades before the French Revolution.
The revival of luxe in early-twentieth-century French decorative arts was superbly illustrated in “Ruhlmann: Genius of Art
Deco,” the first major retrospective devoted to all aspects of the
career of the preeminent exponent of high-style French Art
Deco. By the 1920s Emile-Jacques Ruhlmann was the most prestigious and sought-after designer of his day. Combining aesthetic
refinement, luxurious materials, and impeccable craftsmanship,
his works rank among the finest decorative arts of any era.
The evolution of the widely anticipated outdoor work of art
for New York City initiated in 1979 by the husband-and-wife
collaborators Christo and Jeanne-Claude was the subject of the
exhibition “Christo and Jeanne-Claude: The Gates, Central Park,
New York.” Featuring preparatory drawings and collages by
Christo, along with photographs, maps, and technical diagrams,
the exhibition documented the work of art—consisting of 7,500
saffron-colored gates—that will be on view in Central Park in
February 2005.
A recent gift of more than one hundred works from the Pierre
and Maria-Gaetana Matisse Foundation is celebrated in an
exhibition presented in three parts through June 2005. The son
of Henri Matisse, Pierre Matisse was a New York art dealer who
collected works by, among others, Chagall, Giacometti, Miró,
Magritte, and his artist father. This gift, described more fully in
last year’s report, enormously enhances the Museum’s collection
of modern art.
Thanks to the generosity of several trustees and donors, as
well as those who supported the Acquisitions Fund Benefit last
December, the Museum was able to acquire many significant
objects despite the serious budget constraints of the past year.
Highlights among the recent acquisitions are discussed and illustrated in the fall 2004 Bulletin.
In January 2004, The Fund for the Met, having surpassed its
goal of $650 million set in 2000, announced a continuation of
the campaign with a new goal of $900 million. This next phase
will secure funding for the 21st-Century Met program described
above, as well as for the endowment and acquisitions. In fiscal
year 2004, the capital campaign raised more than $50 million—
including $11 million for the endowment and $6 million for
acquisitions—toward the $900 million goal, bringing the total of
gifts and pledges to $645 million and planned gifts to $63 million.
Individual gifts included an additional $5 million from trustee
Eliot C. Nolen for education, making a total gift of $10 million,
and $3 million from Florence and Herbert Irving to create an
endowment for the Thomas J. Watson Library and name its
Reading Room. Gifts of $1 million for various purposes were
received from board chairman James R. Houghton and his wife
Maisie; vice chairman E. John Rosenwald, Jr., and his wife,
Patty; trustee Bruce C. Ratner; and Sir David and Lady Gibbons.
Other significant gifts were made by honorary trustee Sandra P.
Rose to endow the position of Frederick P. and Sandra P. Rose
Associate Director for Education, held by Kent Lydecker; Janet
Ruttenberg for acquisitions of prints, in honor of curator Colta
Ives; and Barbara and Martha Fleischman, Heidi and Max
Berry, and Maureen and Richard Chilton, all in support of the
programs and activities of the American Wing. In addition,
$13 million was received in the past year from the Estate of Bill
Blass; the bequest from the estate totals $19 million to date.
As a new initiative to enhance revenues, the Museum began
opening on Monday holidays such as Columbus Day, Martin
Luther King Jr. Da y, and Pres i d e n t s’ Day, which has proven to
be very popular, especially for families and out-of-town visitors.
We continued to offer visitors the opportunity to see selected
special exhibitions on Mondays, when the Museum is usually
closed, for a $50 fee. This, too, has been well received and has
helped contribute to revenues. (Further information about the
Museum’s budget is contained in the Report of the Chief
Financial Officer.)
While the Metropolitan Museum is renowned for its collections and exhibitions, it is also one of New York’s premier concert
halls. A highlight of the past season was the yearlong celebration
of the fiftieth anniversary of our Concerts and Lectures series.
In 1954 Isaac Stern, Marian Anderson, and Arthur Rubinstein
were among the artists performing. Over the succeeding years
dozens of musicians and singers made their New York debuts at
the Museum, including András Schiff, Garrick Ohlsson, Cecilia
Bartoli, and Les Arts Florissants, to cite only a few. From the
start, the series championed performers early in their careers;
these have included Glenn Gould, Daniel Barenboim, Richard
Goode, Itzhak Perlman, Pinchas Zuckerman, Emanuel Ax, and
Yo-Yo Ma. Other artists, such as Andrés Segovia and Leon
Fleisher, have given master classes at the Museum. As part of our
commitment to music, the Met has also commissioned works,
beginning in the early 1960s and continuing today. A recent
co-commission, John Tavener’s “Lamentations and Praises,” was
performed at The Temple of Dendur in The Sackler Wing and
later received two Grammy Awards.
In June we announced the creation of a new and expanded
curatorial department, Nineteenth-Century, Modern, and
Contemporary Art, embracing European paintings from the
nineteenth century up to the present, as well as international
5
twentieth-century sculpture, drawings, prints, decorative arts,
and design. Gary Tinterow, the Museum’s longtime Engelhard
Curator of 19th-Century European Painting, became Engelhard
Curator in Charge of the new department. William S. Lieberman,
the distinguished curator who for twenty-five years had led the
Department of Modern Art, will continue to play a major and
active role as Jacques and Natasha Gelman Special Consultant
for Modern Art. In addition, the new Department of Scientific
Research, under the direction of scientist in charge Marco Leona,
was established in February. In the Department of Photographs,
Malcolm Daniel was elected curator in charge.
Susana Torruella Leval and Jeffrey W. Greenberg were elected
trustees; Sheikh Nasser Sabah al-Ahmed al-Sabah and David
Tobey were elected honorary trustees; and Sally Minard was
appointed as the representative of ex officio trustee the Honorable
William C. Thompson, Jr., Comptroller of New York City, on
the board of trustees. The board mourned the death of trustee
emeritus Laurence A. Tisch, whose generosity to the Museum is
acknowledged by The Tisch Galleries for special exhibitions.
6
Trustees and staff were also deeply saddened by the deaths of
William B. Macomber, Jr., who served as president of the
Museum from 1978 to 1986, and Clare Le Corbeiller, curator
emerita in the De p a rtment of Euro p ean Sculpture and Decor a t i ve
Arts, a much-respected scholar and notably generous colleague,
whose involvement with the Museum began more than fifty
years ago.
We wish to thank the outgoing chairman of the Volunteer
Organization, Lucinda Ballard, and her assistant, Angela Duff,
for their significant contributions over the past two years. We
welcome the new chairman, Susan Eddy, and extend our profound appreciation to all the volunteers who give of their time
and skills so generously year after year. To the Museum’s many
members and friends, we express our gratitude and our commitment to maintaining the high standards you have come to
expect of this institution.

Mission Statement
T
he Metropolitan Museum of Art was founded on April 13,
1870, “to be located in the City of New York, for the purpose of
establishing and maintaining in said city a Museum and library
of art, of encouraging and developing the study of the fine arts, and the
application of arts to manufacture and practical life, of advancing the
general knowledge of kindred subjects, and, to that end, of furnishing
popular instruction.”1
This statement of purpose has guided the Museum for 130 years.
Today the Trustees of The Metropolitan Museum of Art reaffirm
this statement of purpose and supplement it with the following
statement of mission:
The mission of The Metropolitan Museum of Art is to collect,
preserve, study, exhibit, and stimulate appreciation for and
advance knowledge of works of art that collectively represent the

which may include the most advanced technologies.
VI. SERVICE OF THE PUBLIC
• Reach out to the widest possible audience in a spirit of inclusiveness.
• Serve the best interests of the public in every aspect of the Museum’s
governance, programs, and operations.
• Seek to increase public understanding of the Museum’s goals.
VII. STANDARDS
• Aspire to excellence, meeting the highest professional, scholarly,
and ethical standards in every aspect of the Museum’s governance,
programs, and operations.
The Museum recognizes the following elements as essential to the
fulfillment of its mission and the achievement of its goals:

mission.
IV. FINANCIAL EQUILIBRIUM
Simultaneously, strive to
• Meet the full programmatic needs of the Museum.
• Provide the infrastructure and support (such as staffing, salaries,
maintenance, and capital and fundraising programs) necessary to
maintain excellence.

Education
As preparations began for major renovation of the Ruth and Harold
D. Uris Center for Education, educational work at The Metropolitan
Museum of Art maintained its focus on service to the public. Activities
that utilized the classrooms, studio, and auditorium of the Uris Center
were reorganized and—where possible—relocated to other areas of the
building. For example, teacher workshops that previously used a classroom as well as the galleries were changed so that they could occur only
in the galleries. Other creative adjustments included concentration of
free public lecture and performance events in a special format, “Sunday
at the Met,” which drew large audiences to The Grace Rainey Rogers
Auditorium.
A special achievement of the year was a Museum-wide initiative to
reach out to families. Long-standing programs for families expanded with
a special family Audio Guide, new programs featuring Museum curator s ,
friendly family greeters in the Great Hall, and special Communica t i on s
De p a rtment efforts to welcome young New Yorkers to the Met. Se c u r it y,
Ed u ca t i on, Vi s it or Se rv i c es, Communications, and De velopment worked
together to achieve this new level of service to families .
Overall, the Museum, through all its departmental efforts—Education, The Cloisters, Visitor Services, Membership, and Concerts and
Lectures—organized some 18,509 events reaching 797,447 people;
224,772 visitors utilized the Audio Guide, which has now expanded to
include commentary on 1,400 works of art in the permanent collection.
With the necessary reconfiguration of the entry spaces at 81st Street to
prepare for construction, the main building and The Cloisters welcomed
2,997 classes, representing 76,603 pupils. The Museum’s unique outreach activities for schools, families, and teachers continued without
interruption, numbering 1,212 events reaching 33,583 participants,
many of whom made follow-up visits to see Museum collections or exhibitions. Moreover, the Metropolitan’s extraordinary—and growing—list
of publications for educators pays continuous dividends because these
resources are available in schools throughout the city, can be borrowed
from the library and resource center in the Uris Center (which facility
has been reconfigured in the interim space), and are available online.
New educational publications included Islamic Art and Geometric
Design (with special interest for mathematics and design educators and
their students) and Nature within Walls: The Chinese Garden Court at
The Metropolitan Museum of Art, as well as family guides, Childe
Hassam: In City and Country, Let’s Look at Armor in the Arms and Armor
Galleries, and MuseumKids: The Art of Chess at The Metropolitan Museum
of Art. Art & The Alphabet: A Tactile Experience provided a new level of
access for students who are blind or partially sighted. Special features for
young people available on the Web site expanded with material on
arms and armor and Childe Hassam, while the Timeline of Art History
advanced to a.d. 1800. The Timeline will be complete through the
present day in October 2004.
The Museum’s distinguished Concerts and Lectures program celebrated its 50th anniversary. A gala opening featured the Orpheus
Chamber Orchestra in the Museum’s Great Hall. Two new series were
launched: one celebrating the artistry of legendary musicians, the other
(Metropolitan Museum Artists in Concert) showcasing our first resident
chamber ensemble. An impressive roster of pianists, including Peter
Serkin, Nikolai Lugansky, Stephen Kovacevich, Leon Fleisher, Yundi Li,
and Louis Lortie, graced our concert stage, and illustrated talks with
world-famous musicians (violinist Maxim Vengerov and pianists
Richard Goode and Menahem Pressler) framed the series.
Forty scholars received Metropolitan Museum of Art fellowships
during the year, complementing exchange programs with museums
throughout the world. Four symposia (“Oribe and the Arts of SixteenthCentury Japan”; “New Light on American Landscape Painting”;
“Byzantium: Faith and Power [1261–1557]”; and “Renaissance Bronzes
and ‘Renaissance’ Bronzes: Vindication of Authentic Works and
Detection of Imitations and Fakes through Stylistic and Technical
Analysis”), three Scholars Days (“The Dawn of Photography: French
Daguerreotypes, 1839–1855”; “Childe Hassam, American Impressionist”; and “Ruhlmann: Genius of Art Deco and Art Deco Paris”), and
six fellows colloquia took place, marking the Metropolitan’s role as a
committed sponsor of serious scholarship about art.
In all these efforts, the invaluable con t r ib u t i on of our Volunteer Or g anization and the crea t i v ity of staff in all Museum departments al l owe d
the Metropolitan to sustain a con s t e l l a t i onof educa t i on al opp ort u n it i es
for our public in a time of physical readjustment and fi s cal constraint.

Report of the Chief Financial Officer
L
ike so many cultural institutions, The Metropolitan Museum
of Art faced difficult financial challenges during fiscal year
2004 and for the third time in a row ended the year with a
deficit. But while encountering challenges such as a decrease in
revenues, the escalating cost of insurance, pensions, health benefits,
and other costs beyond the Museum’s control, and the absence of
significant growth in City funding—conditions that will likely continue for the foreseeable future—the Met also began a number of
projects that testify to the vitality of the institution and that will
allow it to emerge stronger in the long term. We are investing in
building and technology infrastructure, and are undertaking capital
projects such as the new Leon Levy and Shelby White Court for
Roman and Etruscan art, the renovation of the Ruth and Harold D.
Uris Center for Education, and the expansion and renovation of
gallery space in several areas. These projects are proceeding at the
same time that the Met pursues its commitment to bring revenues
and expenses into balance. Also significant is the return on the
Museum’s long-term investment portfolio, which, at 18.6 percent
for the year, exceeded the performance benchmarks against which it
is measured. The Museum’s net assets increased by 13.3 percent over
last year, mainly as a result of outstanding investment returns and
the continued success of The Fund for the Met campaign.
Thus, while the Museum’s financial picture continues to be a
challenging one that will require it to implement additional costcutting and revenue-enhancing initiatives to achieve a balanced
budget by fiscal year 2006, the forecast contains positive developments. Projects now under way related to the Museum’s resources,
infrastructure, and capital; growing revenue from membership,
merchandising, and gifts and grants; and an increase in assets and
decline in liabilities demonstrate that the institution’s strength and
preeminence are not jeopardized by its commitment to a goal of
financial stability.
A more detailed discussion of the Museum’s fi n a n c i al sit u a t i on
f or fiscal year 2004 is provided below.
Operating Results
The Museum ended fiscal year 2004 with a deficit of $4.8 million,
following deficits of $1.8 million and $5.2 million for the two
previous years. Total operating re venue for fi s cal year 2004, including
net results from auxiliary activities and transfers of designated nonoperating funds, totaled $161.6 million, an increase of $2.7 million,
or 1.7 percent, over fiscal year 2003. Despite lower admissions revenue, the Museum experienced revenue growth in several key areas,
including membership, merchandising, and gifts and grants. The
number of visitors to the main building and The Cloisters declined
from 4.9 million in fiscal year 2003 to 4.7 million this year. A
marked improvement in the U.S. and global economies brought a
return of international travelers to New York City during the second
half of the fiscal year, which mitigated declines experienced during
the first half of the fiscal year. However, attendance still remains
below the pre-September 11th level of 5.4 million visitors yearly.
The smaller number of visitors resulted in a 1.1 percent reduction in
admissions income and a 7.1 percent decline in audience-dependent
income such as that from the restaurants and the garage.
Membership income increased by 3.1 percent and reached an
all-time high of $20.2 million in fiscal year 2004. The overall
number of members grew by almost 1 percent to 117,805, up from
116,974 in the previous year. Once again the greatest growth in
membership was in the Met Net category, which experienced a
12 percent increase.
Even in a challenging fund-raising environment, donors
responded to the Museum’s efforts with strong contributions, especially for the sponsorship of special exhibitions. Special exhibitions
obtained the highest funding to date in fiscal year 2004, largely

b e cause of seve r al highly acclaimed exhib itions that included El Greco
and Byzantium: Faith and Power (1261–1557). Other individual
giving pro g r a ms—the Chairman’s Council, Friends Groups,
Met Family Circle, and Travel with the Met—continued to show
healthy growth in fiscal year 2004. And fund-raising events organized through The Costume Institute as well as Real Estate,
Corporate, and Family benefits also raised significant amounts to
support the Museum’s activities.
The Museum’s operating strategy for merchandising continues to
be effective, producing a 10 percent growth in fiscal year 2004
through signifi cant expansion in sal es from all distribution channels,
including satellite stores, mail order, wholes ale, and the e-commerce
port i on of the Museum’s Web site, www.metmuseum.org. Merchandise
s al es in the main building increased des p ite the decline in attendance
b e cause of higher per ca p ita visitor spending. Outside the Museum,
three new retail shops opened in high-traffic tourist areas that include
Newark Airport and Bush Intercontinental Airport in Houston.
Despite its own fiscal problems, the City of New York maintained
its operating support to the Museum at levels close to those of the
previous yea r. The Museum is grateful to the City as well for retaining
its commitment to fund ongoing capital renovations at The Cloisters
and for providing additional funding for other capital projects.
Endowment support increased by 2.9 percent in fiscal year 2004,
compared to an increase of 6 percent in 2003. Endowment support
was calculated using the Museum’s spending policy of 5.25 percent
of the average market value of the endowment measured over the
12 quarters ending December 31, 2002.
Operating expenses, excluding auxiliary activities, increased faster
than revenues despite the Museum’s efforts to control costs.
Expenses increased by $5.8 million, or 3.6 percent, to $166.5 million, mainly because of the strain of expenses beyond the Museum’s
control, such as pensions and benefits and the escalating costs of
producing special exhibitions. In addition, the expense total for fiscal year 2004 included an increase in union salary outlay, the result
of a contract agreement reached between the City of New York and
District Council 37, some of whose members are Museum staff.
These higher expenses were partially offset by measures taken in
other areas of the Museum. During fiscal year 2004, for example,
the Museum implemented several initiatives to reduce its deficit,
including the Holiday Monday program, Monday viewings for
selected special exhibitions at $50 per person, alternate gallery
closings, and an increased Corporate Member fee. In addition, we
managed to cut back the growth in insurance and health care costs
by renegotiating contracts.
Capital Spending
During the past year the Museum opened four reinstalled galleries
of Egyptian art, redesigned admissions desks in the Great Hall and
equipped them with new technology, continued with the facade
renovation, and installed more extensive security systems. In addition the Museum continued its work on the new galleries for Roman
and Etruscan art as part of its launch of the “21st-Century Met”
construction plan for building from within. Capital expenditures for
fiscal year 2004 totaled $40.7 million, an increase of $0.9 million,
or 2.3 percent, over the previous year. Of this figure, $18.7 million
was connected to the “21st-Century Met” plan and $3.2 million was
used to complete the renovation of the Egyptian galleries.
The Metropolitan entered the second year of a three-year project
to restore and clean the Museum’s facade, an effort partially funded
by the City of New York. Thanks to additional funding from the
City, the Museum was able to complete an electrical system upgrade
and replace a roof in the main building and also to continue with it s
long-range plan to address major infrastru c t u re needs at The Cloisters.
Investments in information technology accounted for $2.2 million of the year’s capital expenditures. These included ongoing work
on the new human resources and payroll information system, a new
loan automation program, a new ticketing system for concerts and
lectures, and upgrades to the Museum’s ne tw ork and financial systems.
Statement of Financial Position
During fiscal year 2004 the Museum’s financial position strengthened, with a growth in assets of $248.8 million, or 11.1 percent, and
43
a decline in liabilities of $20.5 million, or 9.6 percent. The increase
in the Museum’s assets reflects the continued success of The Fund
for the Met campaign and the outstanding investment returns generated this year. The Fund for the Met campaign exceeded its goal
of $650 million and launched a new goal of $900 million. The
Museum’s long-term investment portfolio, which includes most of
the Museum’s investment assets, generated a return of 18.6 percent
for fiscal year 2004. The portfolio’s return exceeded by significant
margins both the Museum’s performance benchmarks and the
median return of other endowed institutions, based on data supplied
by Cambridge Associates. The portfolio is managed by outside
investment managers and is highly diversified across a range of asset
classes. Total investments amounted to $2.0 billion at June 30,
2004, compared to $1.8 billion at June 30, 2003.
Total liabilities, excluding the $22.2 million decline in investment
trades payable, increased by $1.7 million, or 1 percent, primarily
because of changes in the timing of accounts payable and accrued
44
expenses, as well as higher accrued salaries and benefits. These
increases were partially offset by reductions in pension and other
accrued retirement obligations, loans payable, and notes payable.
Pension and other accrued retirement obligations declined as corresponding pension assets grew because of positive investment returns,
and funding obligations decreased due to changes in the discount
rates used in calculating the pension liability.
Even with an active capital program, the Museum was able to
reduce its overall debt during the year. The debt, which totaled
$69.4 million at year end, consisted of $37.3 million in tax-exempt
bonds used for capital projects, $2.5 million fair value of an interest
rate exchange agreement related to the 1993 Series A tax-exempt
bonds, and $29.6 million in bank debt used to finance merchandise
assets and working ca p it al needs. Total debt declined by $3.3 million ,
mainly because of a mandatory payment of $1.8 million on the
1993 Series A tax-exempt bonds and a $1.7 million decrease in the
fair value of the interest rate exchange agreement.

To the Board of Trustees of The Metropolitan Museum of Art:
In our opinion, the accompanying statement of financial position and the related statements of activities and cash flows present fairly, in
all material respects, the financial position of The Metropolitan Museum of Art (“the Museum”) at June 30, 2004, and the changes in its
net assets and its cash flows for the year then ended, in conformity with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of
America. T h ese fi n a n c i al statements are the res p onsibility of the Museum’s management; our res p on s ibility is to express an opinion on thes e
fi n a n c i al statements based on our audit. The prior year summarized comparative information has been derived from the Museum’s 2003
financial statements; and in our re p ort dated September 4, 2003, we expressed an unqual i fied opinion on those fi n a n c i alstatements. We conducted our audit of these statements in accordance with auditing standards generally accepted in the United States of America, which
require that we plan and perform the audit to obtain reasonable assurance about whether the financial statements are free of material misstatement. An audit includes examining, on a test basis, evidence supporting the amounts and disclosures in the financial statements,
assessing the accounting principles used and significant estimates made by management, and evaluating the overall financial statement
presentation. We believe that our audit provides a reasonable basis for our opinion.

Basis of Presentation - The Museum classifies all financial transactions into three net asset categories in accordance with donor-imposed restrictions:
permanently restricted, temporarily restricted, and unrestricted.
• Permanently restricted net assets have donor-imposed restrictions which stipulate that the corpus of the gifts be maintained permanently but permit
the Museum to expend net income and gains earned on contributed assets for either specified or unspecified purposes. (Also, see Note N.)
• Temporarily restricted net assets carry donor-imposed restrictions on the expenditure of the contributed assets. Temporary restrictions may expire
with the passage of time or as a result of actions taken by the Museum which fulfill donors’ restrictions. When temporarily restricted net assets are
released from restrictions, they are transferred to unrestricted net assets and shown as “Net assets released from restrictions” in the Statement of
Activities. Transfers from temporarily restricted to unrestricted net assets occur even if the contributions are received and spent within the same year.
• Unrestricted net assets are not restricted by donors. A portion of the unrestricted net assets has been designated by the Museum for specific purposes,
including long-term investment, leasehold improvements, and various curatorial activities.
Measure of Operations - The Museum includes in its mea s u re of operations all re venue and expenses that are integral to its programs and supp orting
activities, net assets released from donor restrictions to support operating expenditures, and transfers from Board-designated non-operating funds to
support current operating activities. The measure of operations includes support for operating activities from restricted net assets and unrestricted
net assets designated for long-term investment (the endowment) according to the Museum’s spending policy, which is detailed in Note G. The measure
of operations excludes endowment support for non-operating and restricted operating activities; investment return in excess of /less than amounts
made available for current support; additions to restricted and designated net assets; adjustments to the minimum pension liability; changes in net assets
of split-interest agreements, after providing for any operating revenue or support; changes in net assets pertaining to acquisition and deaccession of
collection items, and related insurance settlements; depreciation of capital expenditures, except for those related to auxiliary activities, and acquired
computer systems and equipment; fees received for art-lending activities; the entire effect of the interest rate swap; and interest income relating to the
Building and Equipment Res e rve and Con s t ru c t i on Funds, which pertain to the Dormitory Authority loan agreements (see Note M).
Collections - The Museum’s collections comprise more than two million works of art from ancient, medieval, and modern times and from all areas of
the world. They offer a survey of considerable breadth of art from the ancient civilizations of Asia, Africa, South America, the Pacific Islands, Egypt,
the Near East, and Greece and Rome, to the present time. The Museum’s collections include European paintings, medieval art and architecture, arms
and armor, prints, photographs, drawings, costumes, musical instruments, sculpture, textiles, and decorative arts from the Renaissance to the present
time, as well as one of the foremost collections of American art in the world. The Museum also maintains some of the most compre h e n s i ve art and
a rc h it e c t u re lib r a r i es in the Un ited St a t es. The collections are maintained for public exhib it i on, education, and research in furtherance of public
service, rather than for financial gain.
In con f or m ity with accounting policies gene r ally followed by art museums, the value of the Museum’s collections has been excluded from the Statement
of Financial Position, and gifts of art objects are excluded from re venue in the Statement of Ac t i v ities. Purc h a s es of art objects by the Museum are re c orded
as decrea s es in net assets in the Statement of Ac t i v it i es. Pursuant to state law and Museum policy, proceeds from the sale of art and related insurance
s e ttlements, are re c orded as temporarily restricted net assets for the acquisit i on of art.
Cash and Cash Equivalents - Cash equivalents are short-term, highly liquid investments with original maturities of three months or less.
Merchandise Inventories - Me rchandise inve n t or i es are carried at the lower of average cost or market value using the retail inve n t ory method of accounting.
Investments - Investments in short-term instruments, fixed income securities, and equity securities are carried at quoted market prices and exchange
r a t es, if app l i cable. In vestments in investment funds and limited partnerships are carried at fair value. Publicly traded securit i es held in these commingled
investment vehicles are based on third-party quoted market prices. Certain of these investment vehicles, particularly limited partnerships investing in
private equity and real estate, include investments in non-marketable securities for which there are no readily obtainable market values. Values for these
investments are provided by the general partner, and may be based on historical cost, appraisals, obtainable prices for similar assets, or other estimates.
The assumptions and methods used to arrive at these valuations are reviewed by the Museum’s investment office.
Purchase and sale of short-term instruments, fixed income securities, and equity securities are reflected on a trade date basis. Gains and losses on the
sale of securities are based on the difference between the sale price and the average historical cost basis, where such basis represents the cost of securities
purchased or the fair market value at the date of receipt for securities received by donation. Investment income and gains are recorded on the accrual
basis. Investments denominated in foreign currency are translated using the fiscal year-end spot rate.
Fixed Assets - The building occupied by the Museum on Fifth Avenue is owned by the City of New York and is leased free of charge to the Museum pursuant to a capital lease. The value of the original building is not included on the Statement of Financial Position since it is fully depreciated. The
Museum has adopted a policy of implying a time restriction that expires over the useful life of long-lived assets acquired or constructed with contributions restricted for that purpose.
Building and leasehold improvements relating to auxiliary activities and certain equipment are capitalized and reported as fixed assets. The Cloisters
in Fort Tryon Park and other buildings that are the property of the Museum are included as fixed assets, and are stated at cost. Amortization of leasehold improvements of the Fifth Avenue building and depreciation of buildings and equipment are computed on a straight-line basis over the estimated
useful lives of the assets. Amortization of leasehold improvements related to auxiliary activities is computed on a straight-line basis over the shorter of
the remaining term of the lease or estimated useful lives of the assets.
Deferred Income - Membership dues received from individuals and corporations pertaining to all membership categories are recognized ratably as income
over the membership period of up to 24 months. Amounts not yet earned by the end of the fiscal year are reported as deferred income.
51
Contributions, Contributed Utilities and Support - Contributions, including cash, in-kind contributions, and unconditional promises to give (pledges),
are recorded as revenue in the period in which they are received. Conditional contributions are recognized as revenue when the conditions on which
they depend have been substantially met. Contributions are recorded at fair value, and in the case of pledges, net of estimated uncollectible amounts,
and discounted if due in over one year.
The heat, light, and power costs of the Fifth Avenue building are paid for by the City of New York. The value of such costs is re p orted as income and a
corres p onding amount is included as an expense in the Statement of Ac t i v it i es. The City of New York also provides funds for guardianship and maintenance, including reimbursement for salaries, Social Se c u r it y, and pension contributions.
The Museum has volunteers who provide administrative assistance in various areas of the Museum. Such contributed services do not meet the criteria for recognition of contributed services contained in generally accepted accounting principles and, accordingly, are not reflected in the accompanying
financial statements.
Functional Allocation of Expenses - The costs of providing Museum programs and supp orting serv i c es are detailed in Note O. Programs include curator i al
activities, conserva t i on, and exhib it i on; educa t i on; libraries; public serv i c es; and auxiliary activit i es. Curator i al costs include gallery maintenance and
renovation, collections care and maintenance, scholarly research and publications, and special exhibitions. Supporting services include fundraising,
and management and general administrative costs. Fundraising costs include expenses associated with individual and corporate memberships, annual
appeals, benefit events, capital campaign, and other fundraising efforts. Management and general administrative costs include expenses for executive
management, financial administration, information systems, human resources, legal services, and investment management fees. De preciation, interes t ,
u t i l it i es, building maintenance, securit y, and other operating costs are al l o cated to the above program areas and supp orting services.
Ad ve rtising - Ad ve rtising expenses pertaining to merchandising activit i es, mostly attributable to the production and distrib u t i on of ca t al o g u es, amounted
to $5.9 million and $5.2 million in fiscal years 2004 and 2003, respectively. Other advertising expenses incurred primarily in support of special exhibitions, the permanent collection, and concerts and lectures totaled $2.3 million and $3.1 million in fiscal years 2004 and 2003, respectively. The latter
amounts include gifts-in-kind of $0.4 million and $1.2 million in fiscal years 2004 and 2003, respectively.
Interest Expense - Interest on borrowings applicable to major construction projects in progress is capitalized and depreciated. Total interest paid during
fiscal years 2004 and 2003 was $1.9 million and $2.1 million, respectively, of which $1.2 million each year relates to the amount paid under the interes t
rate swap agreement. Interest not ca p it al i zed is charged to operating expenses or, as related to the swap agreement, to non-operatinga c t i v it i es.
Income Tax Status - The Museum is a nonprofit organization exempt from income tax under Section 501(c)(3) of the Internal Revenue Code.
Estimates - The preparation of financial statements in conformity with generally accepted accounting principles requires management to make estimates
and assumptions that affect the re p orted amounts of assets and liabilities and disclosure of contingent assets and liabilities at the date of the fi n a n c i al
statements and the reported amounts of revenue and expenses during the reporting period. Actual results could differ from those estimates.
Prior Year Comparisons and Reclassifications - The Museum has included both current and prior year fi n a n c i al data in its fi n a n c i al statements. To facilitate
the comparison on the Statement of Ac t i v it i es, the Museum has chosen to present the prior year infor m a t i on in summary form, without segre g a t i on of the
data by net asset values. As a result, that particular historical information is not presented in compliance with generally accepted accounting principles.
It should there f ore be re v i ewed in con j u n c t i onwith the more detailed infor m a t i on set forth in the audited financial statements for fi s cal year 2003,
the source from which the summary infor m a t i on was derive d .
Certain amounts in fiscal year 2003 have been reclassified to conform to the fiscal year 2004 statement presentation.

The cost value of the total investment portfolio was $1,834.7 million and $1,784.2 million as of June 30, 2004 and 2003, respectively.
At June 30, 2004, the Museum had approximately $324.2 million in remaining capital commitments to investment funds and limited partnerships.
The Museum maintains a highly diversified portfolio of investments that is designed to preserve the inflation-adjusted purchasing power of invested
funds while providing a stream of earnings for current use. Investment objectives and policies are established by the Museum’s Trustee Investment
Committee and are achieved in partnership with external investment managers.
Certain of the Museum’s investment managers incorporate the use of financial instruments with off-balance sheet risk in Museum accounts as part of
their investment strategies, primarily to hedge against equity, currency, or interest rate risk. These include equity and fixed income futures and options,
and foreign currency options and forward contracts. These instruments are either traded on organized exchanges or entered into with creditworthy
financial institutions.
According to the Museum’s spending policy, a portion of the total investment return on restricted and unrestricted net assets designated for long-term
investment is available to support current programs, while the remainder is reinvested. Distributions available for spending are limited to a range of
4.5% to 5.5% of a lagged average market value of endowment assets over a specified period set by the Board of Trustees. For fiscal years 2004 and
2003, the spending rate was set by the Board at 5.25%. The value used to calculate the spending rate for fiscal year 2004 was the average of the twelve
quarters ended December 31, 2002.
As a result of market declines, the fair market value of certain permanently restricted endowments is less than the historical cost of such funds. The
losses on these endowment funds were not material to the net assets of the Museum at June 30, 2004, and are recorded as reductions in unrestricted

I. Faɪʀ Va ʟue of Fɪɴaɴcɪaʟ Iɴ s t ʀu m e ɴ ts
The following methods and assumptions were used to estimate the fair value of each class of financial instruments appearing on the Statement of
Financial Position, for which it is practicable to estimate that value (for all categories listed, carrying value approximates fair value):
Cash and Cash Equivalents - These assets consist mainly of cash in banks and investments in short-term, interest-bearing instruments which are carried
at cost plus accrued interest.
Pledges Receivable - Fair value, after allowances for uncollectible pledges, was determined by discounting the expected future cash flows by a risk-free
short-term borrowing rate.
Investments - The fair value of investments, which consist mainly of equity securities, debt securities, investment funds, and limited partnerships, was
based principally upon quoted market prices or, if unavailable, was determined by general partners of limited partnerships.
Sp l i t - In t e rest Ag re e m e n t s - Fair value of the related liabilities was determined by the difference between the gift and the actuarial computation of
remainder value.
Notes Payable and Loans Payable & Other Long-Term Liabilities - Fair value of these liabilities was based upon discounting of future cash flows.
J. Lɪfe Iɴ come Fuɴds aɴd Otʜeʀ Tʀu s ts
Life income funds consist of charitable remainder trusts, gift annuit i es, pooled income funds, and other trust assets. These funds are held in trust for one
or more beneficiaries, and gene r ally pay lifetime income to those benefi c i a r i es, after which the pr i n c i p al is made available to the Museum in accordance
w ith don or intentions. The value of these and other trust agreements, excluding new gifts and distrib u t i ons, increased by $3.1 million and decreased by
$0.5 million in fiscal years 2004 and 2003, respectively. Present value discount rates applied to these funds ranged from 6.75% to 5.0% in fiscal yea r s
2004 and 2003.
Trusts invested on behalf of others:
• In 1993, a $9.0 million charitable lead trust was established, and the funds were invested in the Museum’s pooled investments. The Museum
receives a stipulated annual amount from the trust and is obliged to pay the $9.0 million plus any accumulated income pursuant to a note payable
to the trustee in 2007.
• In 1997, a perpetual trust of $3.6 million was transferred to the Museum to manage in its pooled investments. The Museum receives annual
endowment support from the trust and pays expenses on behalf of the trust.

The following section briefly describes the Museum’s various pension and postretirement plans, with supporting data in the schedules below.
Defined benefit pension plan for union staff - The Museum has a qualified defined benefit pension plan for all union employees covered by a collective
bargaining agreement. Benefits under this plan are based on years of service and the employees’ final four years of compensation.
Supplemental defined benefit pension plans for certain non-union staff - The Museum has a supplemental qualified and a supplemental non-qualified defined
benefit pension plan for certain non-union employees to provide future benefits at least equal to the benefits provided under a defined benefit pension plan
that was terminated. The projected bene fit obligation and accumulated bene fit obligation of the supp l e m e n t al defi ned benefit plan, which is unfunded
and non - q u al i fied, we re $3.5 million and $2.4 million, res p e c t i ve l y, as of Ju ne 30, 2004, and $3.2 million and $1.9 million, res p e c t i ve l y, as of Ju ne 30, 2003.
Defined contribution plan for non-union staff - The Museum has a mandatory defined contribution pension plan for all non-union employees. The
Museum’s contributions under this plan are based on 6% of a participant’s base pay during the year. The Museum also contributes 5.7% of base pay earnings that exceed the Social Security wage base during a calendar year. The cost of the defined contribution pension plan recognized in fiscal years 2004 and
2003 was $3.6 million and $3.3 million, respectively.
Defined contribution plan for union staff - The Museum has a voluntary defined contribution plan for all union employees covered by a collective bargaining
agreement. The Museum contributes up to 2% of the participant’s salary based on a schedule. The cost of this plan was less than $0.1 million for each of
the fiscal years 2004 and 2003.
Postretirement benefits - The Museum provides postretirement medical care benefit coverage to retired employees as outlined below.
• Non-union staff: Substantially all of the Museum’s non-union employees become eligible for these benefits when they reach age 55 and have 15 years of
service to the Museum.
• Union staff: The Museum’s union employees are covered by postretirement medical care plans pursuant to a collective bargaining agreement between the
Museum and Local 1503 of District Council 37 (member of the AFSCME and AFL-CIO). The Museum’s union employees become eligible for these
benefits when they reach age 52 and have 10 years of service or age 62 with 5 years of service to the Museum. The Museum made contributions to the
union’s postretirement medical care benefit plans of $1.4 million for each of the fiscal years 2004 and 2003.
Funding policy - The Museum’s funding policy is to contribute annually an amount that meets the minimum requirements of the Employee Retirement
Income Security Act of 1974 (ERISA), using different assumptions from those used for financial reporting.
The tables below and on the following page set forth the net liability recognized in the Statement of Financial Position, the change in plan assets, the

Investment strategies and basis for determining the overall expected long-term rate of return - Assets of the Museum’s defined benefit plans are invested
identically in diversified portfolios that are designed to generate returns sufficient to meet o b l i g a t i ons to benefi c i a r i es at acceptable levels of risk. Inves tment objectives and policies are established by the Museum’s Trustee Investment Committee and are achieved in partnership with external investment
managers. The target allocation of the plans is 60% to equity securities and 40% to fixed income securities. As of June 30, 2004, the plans’ allocation
to equities and fixed income was 60.6% and 39.4%, respectively. The allocation to fixed income included 0.8% in cash and cash equivalents. As of
June 30, 2003, the plans’ allocation to equities and fixed income was 61.4% and 38.6%, respectively. The allocation to fixed income included 1.1% in
cash and cash equivalents. The expected return on the plans’ assets has been developed in consultation with external advisors, taking into account such
factors as long-term historical returns for equity and fixed income assets and long-term forecasts for inflation.

Medicare - On December 8, 2003, the Medicare Prescription Drug, Improvement and Modernization Act of 2003 (“the Act”) was signed into law.
The Act introduces a prescription drug benefit under Medicare Part D as well as a Federal subsidy to employers whose plans provide an “actuarial
equivalent” prescription drug benefit. The Museum’s postretirement prescription drug benefits may qualify for this subsidy and consequently the
Museum will treat the effects of the Act as an actuarial gain.
FASB Staff Position FAS 106-2, “Accounting and Disclosure Requirements Related to the Medicare Prescription Drug, Improvement and Modernization Act of 2003” has also been issued and requires that employers recognize the Act no later than the first interim measurement date following
June 15, 2004. Accordingly, the Museum has elected to reflect the Act in fiscal 2005, adopting the statement as of July 1, 2004. Management has not
yet determined the impact of FAS 106-2 on the financial statements.
L. Notes Paʏa ʙ ʟ e
At June 30, 2004 and 2003 the Museum had three cre d it facilit i es with two commerc i al banks. Under the largest cre d it facility, which is a $50 million
revolving line of credit, the Museum had borrowed $29.6 million and $29.3 million as of June 30, 2004 and 2003, respectively. Any amount borrowed
under the revolving line of credit is payable in full on or before April 16, 2009. The borrowing bears interest at variable rates, and accrued interest is
payable quarterly. Total interest expense on bank borrowings amounted to $0.4 million and $0.5 million in fiscal years 2004 and 2003, respectively. As
of June 30, 2004, the interest rate on the outstanding debt was 1.66%. Under the loan agreement, the Museum has covenanted to maintain a ratio of
Available Assets to Ge ne r al Liabilit i es, as defi ned, of not less than 2:1. The Museum was in compliance with this re q u i rement at June 30, 2004, and 2003.
In addition to the revolving line of credit, the Museum has two lines of credit totaling $30 million under which no borrowings were outstanding at
June 30, 2004 and 2003. Borrowings under the lines of credit are payable on demand and bear interest at variable rates which are paid monthly. The
Museum had letters of credit aggregating $2.8 million at June 30, 2004 and 2003 under a sublimit for one of the lines of credit.

In 1993, the Museum entered into two loan agreements with the Dormitory Authority of the State of New York (“the Authority”) to finance the
construction and equipping of certain of the Museum’s facilities and to defease existing indebtedness. Pursuant to these loan agreements, the Authority
issued Se r i es 1993 Re venue Bonds consisting of $41.7 million Se r i es 1993A Variable In t e rest Rate Bonds, due serially to July 1, 2015, and $22.1 million
Series 1993B Variable Interest Rate Bonds, due by July 1, 2020. The Series 1993B Bonds are secured by the Museum’s annual membership dues.
The loan agreements require the Museum to maintain investments in certain defined securities having a market value of at least 120% of the aggregate
principal amount of the Museum’s outstanding short-term debt as defined in the agreements. Additionally, the Museum must maintain a ratio of
Available Assets to Ge ne r al Liabilit i es, as defi ned, of not less than 2:1. The Museum was in compliance with these covenants at Ju ne 30, 2004 and 2003.
In summary, the Authority’s bonds underlying the Museum’s indebtedness comprised the following (in thousands):

While the revenue bonds are not direct indebtedness of the Museum, the loan agreements with the Authority obligate the Museum to make payments equal to the interest and mandatory redemption requirements of such bonds. A liability equivalent to the principal amount of the Authority’s
outstanding revenue bonds, adjusted for fair value of future interest payments, is reflected in the Statement of Financial Position.
In 1993, the Museum entered into a 22-year interest rate exchange agreement with Morgan Stanley that effectively changes the Museum’s interest rate
exposure on the Series 1993A Variable Interest Rate Bonds to a fi xed rate. The notion al amount of the swap was init i ally set at $41.7 million and amortizes according to a schedule that is similar to the mandatory re d e m p t i on schedule of the Se r i es 1993A Variable Interest Rate Bonds. Under the terms of
the interest rate exchange agreement, Morgan Stanley pays to the Museum a variable rate consistent with the rate on the Series 1993A Bonds, and the
Museum pays to Morgan Stanley a fixed rate of 4.77% per annum. As of Ju ne 30, 2004, the interest rate on the loan payable was 1.01%. Total interes t
in both fi s cal years 2004 and 2003 amounted to $1.5 million of which $1.2 million relates to the interest rate swap agreement.
At June 30, 2004 and 2003, $2.0 million and $5.8 million of investments, res p e c t i vely, we re in the custody of a trustee in conne c t i on with the
revenue bonds. At June 30, 2004, $2.0 million was held by the trustee as a reserve for the payment of debt service. During fiscal year 2004 the
Authority released $3.8 million of funds previously held to defray the cost of damage to any construction project.

S
ince its beginnings more than a century ago, the Metropolitan
Museum has re c e i ved gene rous supp ort from a distinguished
g roup of friends who have, with their gifts and person al commitment, built it into one of the most encyclopedic museums in the
world.
There are a variety of ways in which friends of the Museum can
m a x i m i ze their supp ort. A bequest by will con t i n u es to prov i d e
one important avenue. In addit i on, there are ways of benefiting
the Museum that have immediate tax adva n t a g es for don ors.
T h ese plans may provide income for the don or and/or some
other person, or they can be useful in transferring assets to one’s
heirs at a lower tax cost.
Such a gift will both perpetuate your long-standing commitment
to the Museum and help assure that its riches will be there for
future gene r a t i ons to enjoy.
Perhaps you have al ready made such a prov i s i on. If so, you are
e l i g ible for membership in The WilliamSo c i e t y. To let us know,
or for more infor m a t i on about bequests or planned gifts, please
contact the Pl a n ned Giving Program, The Metropolitan Museum
of Art, 1000 Fifth Avenue, New York, New York 10028-0198 or
by email at [email protected]
The Museum wishes to thank particularly: Mayor Michael R. Bloomberg; City Council Speaker A. Gifford Miller; Chair of the City Council Finance
Committee David I. Weprin; Comptroller William C. Thompson; Deputy Mayor Patricia E. Harris; Deputy Mayor Marc V. Shaw; Commissioner of
Cultural Affairs Kate D. Levin; Commissioner of Parks and Recreation Adrian Benepe; Manhattan Borough President C. Virginia Fields; City Council
Member Eva Moskowitz; City Council Member Robert Jackson; City Council Member Miguel Martinez; and other members of the New York City
Council.
The State of New York again provided valuable supp ort for the Museum through the New York State Council on the Arts. We thank especially
Governor George Pataki; Assembly Speaker Sheldon Silver; Senate Majority Leader Joseph L. Bruno; our local representatives in Albany, State Senator
Liz Krueger and Assemblymembers Jonathan L. Bing and Scott M. Stringer; Commissioner of the New York State Department of Ec on o m i c
