Michelangelo (the Ninja Turtle) Visits Michelangelo (the Artist) at the Met

By Kim Snaith on at

New York's Met - The Metropolitan Museum of Art - is currently housing an exhibition of Michelangelo's work. Running until 12th February, what better way to celebrate one of the greatest artists of the western world than by having a Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle namesake pop along to take a visit?

That's exactly what happened yesterday. Michelangelo, the orange turtle, paid a visit to check out the great works of his namesake. The Met's Twitter account shared some photos, and it makes for hilarious viewing.

Turns out the Met also has some Da Vinci on display, so it's a shame that Mikey's brother Leonardo couldn't pop along too. Maybe another day, eh?

If you'd excuse me, I've suddenly got a weird craving for pizza.

You can find out more about the Michelangelo exhibition on the Met's official website.
