    Medieval Christian art. Unicorns. One of the most beautiful settings in the city. Make sure to take the subway so you can emerge from the solid rock.

    Enjoy the day at The Cloisters it's a bit of a subway ride, but well worth it. I highly recommend arriving by 1pm to partake in the Garden Tour, not to be missed!

    European (mostly french and catalan) mediaeval stuff bought in Europe and brought and recoonstructed in America. A good way of spending a morning if staying for some days in NYC

    La vista del río hudson y de el monasterio es espectacular, muy medieval. Lugar tranquilo lejos del bullicio de la ciudad. Pero, $25 dólares por la entrada al monasterio me pareció excesivo.

    Build in the XX century by John Rockefeller, and donated to NY city in 1930s, this museum recreates a medieval monastery and includes a great collection medieval arts and artifacts. EXCELLENT!

    A quirky find in a peaceful setting. It will remind you of Europe (in part because actual structures from Europe were imported brick by brick)

    Perfect day out - feels like a little European time travel, in the midst of the city! Surrounding gardens and view over Hudson are nice for a stroll. Don't miss out on the pingpong tables near A train

    Beautiful historic building and gardens. However, they're missing a clearer narrative to their permanent exhibition. My favorite part was the herbs garden.

    Beautiful. Filled with mostly Medieval Romanesque and Gothic art (don't forget the Merode Altarpiece). You tend to forget that the pillars surrounding the central courtyard are over 600 years old.
