The Director of the Met Museum, Thomas Campbell, has taken the brave step of increasing the 'suggested entry price' for his museum. It's now $25 from $20.

Campbell points out that each visitor actually costs the museum $40, so something has to give. Personally, I think $25 is well worth it, especially as there are all sorts of concessions for various groups.

I wonder what the equivalent cost-per-visitor is for the National Gallery in London?
