Two members of the Metropolitan Museum of Art are suing because “they — and untold millions of others — were duped into paying for admission or memberships because the institution has done such a good job of hiding the fact that it’s supposed to be free six days a week.”
That’s silly, isn’t?
Sure, the “recommended” part of the ticket price sign is written in a rather unassuming print, but is it really worth suing for fraud?
Met’s publicist says calls the lawsuit “ludicrous and outrageous,” explaining that, “The suggested admission is $25, but it’s not mandatory. It’s on the signage.”
Apparently, of the 360 surveyed, 85% didn’t know the museum’s admission was free. In other news, people don’t read.
