    The Cloisters makes for a relaxing day trip. Miles from Midtown, the medieval architecture and Gothic buttresses will transport you to another era. You'll feel like an ant strolling from room to room. Read more

    Rockefeller purchased 500 acres across the river to make sure the view from the Cloisters would never be spoiled

    Parking is extremely limited. If you come on a weekend (and drive), you might have to wait 30-45 mins for a spot. Bathroom lines tend to be very long, too. Prepare yourself!

    Kind of a long trip, but a really nice museum of medieval and religious artifacts. They basically transported an entire European monastery to NYC on a boat. Only go if there’s nice weather outside.

    The tapestry is really intricate and the castle itself is a work of art. The outdoor courtyards are amazing and peaceful. Once you're outside you can go on a variety of scenic walks in the area!

    Cloisters contain 12th to 15th century European medieval architecture. The tapestries room with "The hunt of the Unicorn" is interesting!

    Is the Cloisters at Fort Tryon dog friendly? The beautiful lawn outside the museum is a great place to chill with your furbabies. If you have a small dog, you can try sneaking it inside in the bag ;)

    Beautiful place, one of my top 5 places to recommend to friends. Yet, I was robed while climbing the park that leads to the museum. I highly recommend you to take care while getting to the museum.

    Incredible collection, pillaged from Europe. The tapestries are particularly stunning, and look out for the pear trees in the garden.
