As we begin to return to a semblance of normalcy, with museums reopening to limited capacities for now (though maybe not for long), a three-part docuseries goes behind the scenes of New York City’s revered Metropolitan Museum of Art during one of its most challenging periods. The first two hours air back-to-back (the third airs next Friday), with the museum preparing for its 150th anniversary in 2020, only to have the doors close indefinitely when the pandemic takes hold. In the second hour, with social-justice movements and protests on the streets, the Met’s executives examine their own cultural record, finding much room for improvement and atonement.
