For two nights in October, your plans can include checking out some of the best European art that's ever been made. While the Gallery of Modern Art had to ditch its Up Late sessions during its current European Masterpieces from The Metropolitan Museum of Art, New York exhibition due to lockdowns and restrictions, it's still staying open after hours on Saturday, October 9 and Sunday, October 10.

On both days — across a weekend GOMA has dubbed Met Mega Weekend — you can rove your eyes over the exceptional exhibition between 9.30am–9.30pm. And, if you'd like to combine all that art with dinner and drinks, the Bodhi Tree Terrace Bar will also be open from 5–9pm.

Given that works by Titian, Caravaggio, Vermeer, Turner, Degas, Renoir, Van Gogh and Monet form part of the exhibition — and they're just some of the names of the list — you won't be short on things to look at. In total, 65 different masterpieces are currently on display. But if there's one way to make this impressive showcase better, it's by keeping the doors open late, obviously.

European Masterpieces from The Metropolitan Museum of Art, New York closes on Sunday, October 17, so this is one of your last chances to head along, too.
