Jan. 26 (UPI) -- The Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York celebrated its Michelangelo exhibit by having a special guest -- Nina Turtle Michelangelo -- inspect his namesake's works.

The Met posted photos to Twitter showing Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle Michelangelo -- or at least someone dressed as the half-shelled hero -- taking in some of the works at the museum's Michelangelo Buonarroti exhibition.


The museum said Thursday's visit was organized in part by tourism website NYCgo.

"This morning we welcomed Michelangelo, one of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles (@TMNT) at The Met. Our celebrity guest came to see the work of an artist who happens to share his name," The Met tweeted.
