NEW YORK (AP) - New York's Metropolitan Museum of Art will be open to the public 7 days a week starting July 1.

The museum is now closed on Mondays, except on holidays that fall on a Monday.

Also on July 1, the museum's opening time will be changed to 10 a.m., from the current 9:30 a.m.

The changes also apply to The Cloisters, the Met's museum of medieval art and architecture in Fort Tryon Park, in northern Manhattan.

The museum made the announcement on Thursday

Director Thomas Campbell says the decision was made to make the Met "accessible whenever visitors have the urge to experience this great museum."

The Met had a record 6.28 million visitors last year.
