The building and grounds are phenomenal. The setting for the art was ideal. The rooms never felt crowded, and gardens were a delight. We felt transported back to medieval Europe. The minature exhibition was unlike anything I've ever seen. Well worth the trip!

This museum is a jewel--gardens that are so delicately laid out and a river view and the tapestries inside the museum. I was in awe the whole time we were there. I am not a big fan of Catholic art but the setting was so authentic that the art--including stained glass and various statues etc. fit in very well. We... More

Cloisters is a very pleasant stroll from the 190th-Street station (on the "A" subway train) in Harlem (northern Manhattan). The gardens of the Fort Tryon Park, where the Cloisters is located, were magnificent in April when we visited. While most of the museum was built for the collection, parts (e.g. the Chapter House) of the museum itself were transported in... More

I have been visiting the Cloisters since high school. It is a real treasure for all New Yorkers. The exhibits are among the best in the world spanding from the 12th century to the modern age. Onc,e there you feel like you are transported to medieval ages. It is a must see!

I love this museum; it's off the beaten path and not as crowded as the other museums in the area. It's a bit humid in the summer but so worth the trip.

I wasn`t impressed much by this castle,because I`ve seen many magnificient European castles. But I like the romantic Fort Tryon Park which is around the Met Cloisters. I go there for a walk and relax

A great collection of Christian / Catholic art housed in a beautifully crafter medieval castle with gardens to match. Great bookstore and you can just donate to enter too!

The Cluny is one of my favorite museums in Paris. The cloisters allow you to get a reasonable taste of the Cluny without taking the long flight. Great views of the Hudson as well. Do by A train and Uber to keep transport costs down if sans car.

Visited the cloisters on a cloudy, dreary Saturday afternoon but this place really brightened the day. I never knew such a place existed in manhattan. The museum pieces and tapestries were amazing. We spent hours viewing all this museum had to offer. Then we walked outside in the most beautiful park adjacent to the museum. The gardens and the view... More
