A branch of the Met devoted to the art and architecture of medieval Europe, the Cloisters houses over 3,000 relics. The building itself and enclosed medieval gardens are also treasures to behold. A fascinating journey back in time.

The Cloisters Museum & Gardens is a stunning collection containing thousands of works of art and architecture from Medieval Europe. With a heavy emphasis on medieval religious art, tapestries, and works depicting heraldry, The Cloisters Museum is a dream for any Europhile with a penchant for gorgeous and depictive stained glass, religious relics, and artifacts from the time of the Crusades. Also featured on site is a cloistered garden, modeled after medieval planting standards and featuring beautiful and historic design elements. Spend a day reveling in the ancient splendors on display at this New York landmark institution…even the building itself is a work of art!

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.
