The Met Cloisters tickets

Gate Prices Adult $25.00
Child (3-12)

A branch of the Metropolitan Museum of Art dedicated to the art, artifacts, and architecture of medieval Europe, the Cloisters Museum and Gardens is a unique artistic haven overlooking the Hudson River. Perhaps best known for the famous Unicorn Tapestries, their collections contain approximately 3,000 pieces spanning the ninth to sixteenth centuries.

This astonishing collection of tapestry, manuscripts, sculpture, paintings, and religious artifacts is housed in a building inspired by several different medieval French cloisters, making the context as fascinating as its contents. Another iconic feature of this landmark institution are the beautiful enclosed gardens featuring plants and gardening techniques that evoke the Middle Ages.

Art lovers of all kinds won’t want to miss the one-of-a-kind museum and gardens, and it’s a must-visit institution for history buffs. Visit this and the other iconic Met institutions for a complete perspective on their unique artistic vision.

This is a wonderful collection of Medieval Art and I absolutely loved the location. It felt like we were leaving the city for a little while. Such a special spot and what an amazing museum.
