Meet Monopoly: The Met Edition

Our unique Met-centric Monopoly board game offers a brand-new, art-inspired twist on the beloved classic

The Metropolitan Museum of Art recently teamed up with Hasbro, the venerable Pawtucket, Rhode Island–based game company, on a special edition of Monopoly. After months of consultations with Met curators, marketing specialists, and graphic designers, together we created a whole new take on one of the world’s most popular board games. It’s fun, inspiring—and highlights 5,000 years of art from The Met.

The entire game reflects the diversity and breadth of The Met collection

This new version of the classic board game offers familiar components—22 colored properties, distinctively shaped game tokens, Chance and Community Chest cards—with only-at-The Met twists. Famous pieces from The Met’s 17 curatorial departments infuse every aspect of the game. As you amass properties, you’ll be able to develop mini museums of your own, by adding new galleries, followed by wings—all paid for with money featuring art portraits from across world cultures.

The set comes with an illuminating booklet that provides details about the works of art featured in the game

Leaf through the included booklet (shown above) to learn more about the artworks that bring this special Monopoly game to life. Or just break out the game board and pieces and read up as you go. Building a real-estate empire has never been so artful!

Monopoly: The Met Edition can be played by two to six players

We think the results speak for themselves—a fabulous, art-centric board game that the whole family can share and enjoy for years to come. Purchase Monopoly: The Met Edition for yourself or as a gift for your art-loving friends or relatives here.
