Though fewer in number than The Met originally anticipated, thirty-four people have been laid off at the museum in continued efforts to meet budget objectives. This is on top of the fifty staff members who took buyouts in July. While The Met remains committed to its core mission, the museum expects to reduce the number of annual exhibitions from fifty-five to approximately forty.
