Despite its well-documented financial struggles, the Metropolitan Museum of Art announced that it welcomed a record 6.7 million visitors during the fiscal year ending on June 30.

The institution has been struggling with a $10 million deficit that has led to numerous cost-cutting measures, such as voluntary buyouts to longtime staff members.
