Crown and Prophet: An Epic Fantasy Adventure in the Metropolitan Museum of Art
Inspired by epic fantasies like Game of Thrones and Lord of the Rings, “Crown and Prophet” takes participants on a highly interactive adventure throughout the museum, complete with group activities, intrigue, rivalry, quests…and plenty of surprises. The tour will engage guests with works of art that may remind them of places and spaces in a number of classic fantasy stories, while also involving them in a race against the clock to solve a series of challenges.
So grab your scabbard, hitch up your hilt, and cover up in that cloak: You’re about to embark on an adventure that offers a completely new way of exploring the Metropolitan Museum.
Please note: There are no objects or replicas of objects from Game of Thrones or Lord of the Rings in the Metropolitan Museum.

Present Tense (i.e., tense about giving presents?) No more! Choose a Fable & Lark GiftTag!
A GiftTag works like a gift certificate–choose any of our offerings to give to someone, and we’ll send the recipient an adorable GiftTag with all the details. (You can also send them the GiftTag and let them choose the program themselves.) Present perfect!
