NYC museum accused of duping on fees

The board at the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York displays admission fees, which are recommended but not mandatory. Many visitors to the museum, especially foreign tourists, don’t realize that the fees listed on the sign are merely suggestions. Confusion over what’s required to enter the Met, which draws more than 6 million visitors a year, is at the heart of a class-action lawsuit this month accusing it of an illegal “scheme” to defraud the public into believing the fees are required.
Visitors to the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York wait in line Tuesday to buy admission tickets.
