UPDATE (October 12,2018): According to the Metropolitan Museum of Art as reported by ArtNet, “Heavenly Bodies” has become the institution’s most visited exhibition. The showcase attracted 1,659,647 visitors during its run, beating out 1978’s “Treasures of Tutankhamun,” which had 1,360,957 visitors.


Since May 10 of this year, The Metropolitan Museum of Art has been captivating public audiences with the new “Heavenly Bodies: Fashion and the Catholic Imagination” exhibition. Now, as several outlets have noted, it looks like acclaimed showcase has broken the record for the most-visited exhibit at The Met’s Costume Institute.

Specifically, more than 1.3 million attendees at the Upper East Side museum and almost 200,000 at The Met Cloisters have experienced “Heavenly Bodies: Fashion and the Catholic Imagination.” With several days to go until its October 8 closing, this means its also close to racking up the top spot for the most-visited event in The Met’s history. The current record-holder for The Met’s most-attended exhibit goes to 1978’s “Treasures of Tutankhamun.”
