Join a team of art detectives at the Met as you become a museum scientist for a day. Learn to use microscopy, fiber optics reflectance spectroscopy, infrared and raman spectroscopy, and X-ray fluorescence spectroscopy to analyze works of art, study pigments and dyes, authenticate works of art, and identify fakes. It’s just like CSI…but for art!
Teens Take the Met is FREE and open to the public.
