The Metropolitan Museum of Art (also known as New York Cosmopolitan Museum) is a famous art museum in New York City. Its permanent collection contains over two million works.
The Real Ghostbusters
Through the years, the museum hosted the world's most honored works of art and most spectacular scientific discoveries. The discovery of all three pieces of the Moaning Stones of Tangalla created a stir among the art community. Miss Nuxum presided over a special ceremony dedicated to reuniting the pieces. However, uniting them freed The Undying One and he quickly cleared out the museum. The Ghostbusters, Janine Melnitz, and Dahlia arrived and bound the demon back into the stones.
In 1997, a Celtic Art exhibit was targeted by a petty thief named Steve Rifkin and stole runes hidden in a statue of Kahlil. A short time later, Curator William received the Orb of Moldova and lost his eyes to Tenebraug. Eduardo Rivera, Kylie Griffin, and Slimer convinced the Metropolitan Museum Administrator to cancel the gala unveiling of the Orb of Moldova just before the 7:00 start time. Eduardo and Kylie were able to defeat Tenebraug without having their sight taken then destroyed the Orb. A short time later, Mayor McShane was invited by the Founder's Circle to be the guest of honor at a dedication ceremony for the museum's new east wing, which housed the world's largest collection of Edouard Manet art. The official ceremony was disrupted by theComponent Parts Emanations of Piper. The emanations caused $5,623 in damages and the bill was sent to the Ghostbusters. The bill was later revoked. Ravana crashed a gala and infected a table lined with food. One woman was infected and made a scene.
