Spanning four picturesque acres on the banks of the Hudson River, the Cloisters Museum and Gardens is one of New York City’s best artistic treasures. A branch of the Metropolitan Museum of Art dedicated exclusively to the art and architecture of Medieval Europe, the Cloisters features extensive collections of painting, sculpture, tapestry and other textiles, historic artifacts, and even medieval armor.
The Cloisters are also renowned for their unique design; modeled after medieval French cloisters, these stunning buildings truly evoke the Middle Ages for visitors roaming their halls. They even have a number of enclosed gardens, featuring plants and cultivation techniques common in medieval Europe.
This fascinating institution is a long time member of the Met family of museums, and is a must-see for art lovers. Visit all three for a comprehensive portrait of their artistic vision!
