The Metropolitian Museum of Art, located in New York City, is sued for scamming visitors into thinking they must pay to enter.

Gone are the days of visiting the Met free of charge.  After being sued by visitors, the Metropolitan Museum of Art says it has signed an amendment to its lease with New York City that confirms the museum can set its own admission fees.

The amendment comes into effect after the museum experiences a lawsuit filed earlier in the year that accuse the Met of scamming visitors into thinking they must pay to enter.

The museum says a policy requiring visitors to pay at least some amount of money has been around for 40 years, and the amendment expresses it in the lease and also gives the museum the ability to consider any other price modifications it might need in the future, Crain’s New York Business Reports.

Visitors sued the museum saying that the change is actually an admission that the museum didn’t have the authority to charge fees for entry over the years.
