The Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York City is no stranger to notable visitors, but they had an especially memorable meet-up between two greats when Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle Michelangelo paid them a visit to see the artistic works of his namesake, Michelangelo di Lodovico Buonarroti Simoni.
The museum tweeted about his visit early Thursday morning. Despite being a trained ninja, his entrance was anything but stealthy: Appearing in full costume, complete with signature orange mask, Mikey threw his arms up with joy as he entered the show, which has been hailed as “an art historical tour de force” by the New York Times.
