Only for those who have a taste for Medieval art. If you have that interest, this is the finest museum of its kind in North America.

What a treasure this is! The tranquil setting is beautiful and perfect for this museum of religious artifacts from medieval times. To think that the collection came from Europe piece by piece is mind boggling. There is a little of everything, from tapestries, to paintings,...More

Quite a way down the Hudson River but worth the cab fare, my friend and I went back to Manhattan by local bus which was entertaining. The Cloisters really is a lovely place to visit, it has an interesting history.

The Met Cloisters is such a surprise find in New York. I've heard about it for years but never took the trip. I am so glad I did. Stunning architecture and absolutely gorgeous. My only regret is that I waited so long to visit.
