Been going here since I was a kid...love this place!!!
Great museum and scenic views.
Enjoy the outdoor sculptures.
MASTER É UM OTIMO BANCO PARA SE ADQUIRIR UM CARTÃO
One of my favorite places in the city. You actually forget that you are in Manhattan.
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.
Love this place...thanks Mr. Rockefeller.
Transported to the Rhine region in an instant.
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
Step back in time to the Medieval times. You'll enjoy some beautiful architecture. One of the most tranquil museums in the city!
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.
After walking through amazing park you'll find yourself with full of Gothic art.
Viendo el museo. Excelente
Take a tour with a docent...sometimes they have special lectures. I love how quiet and peaceful it is...even on a Saturday
This museum is a branch he of the MET and with the admission ticket you are granted entrance to the MET during the same day.
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!
Great view over the Hudson, especially in the fall
The Cuxa cloister is so beautiful
Beautiful views from the Museum of the Hudson river. Also very interesting art to be seen.
Perfect way to spend the day. Beautiful view of the Hudson, gardens were breathtaking & an entire room dedicated to unicorns. Lots of outside area, so I suggest packing some snacks/blanket & enjoy!
THIS ISNT THE HOOKAH PLACE
Great little staycation especially if you have never been to a museum in Europe. Perfect for nice days to lie in the grass after.
A few parking spaces at museum entrance
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.
Apparently there is no gum chewing allowed at the Cloisters. Strange but true.
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.
An ocean of cool calm quiet in the middle of the city. There is a requested costly donation but this museum is well worth a visit! Multiple medieval art pieces and actual reconstructed cloisters.
The poison garden is tremendous fun. Great views as well. But in winter the museum is quieter and even more friendly.
Hidden jewel in NYC. Amazing artwork in a remarkable building.
Stop and smell the garden.
If you can get a tour with Mark Cruse, jump on it. His knowledge and enthusiasm is at once infectious and informative!
Make sure you take the free guided tours. The museum and gardens (cloisters) really come alive.
Gems:The Cloisters Museum, gardens, outstanding views of the Hudson River! Fort Tryon Park: beautiful gardens,Overlook Terrace- superb views of the Hudson! 15 min from Times Sq via A express train
Take the elevator to get out of the train station at 190 Street. You get to enjoy the park and preview the phenomenal views without the hike. ;)
Remember-admission is SUGGESTED. Pay what you feel comfortable paying. Wonderful collection!
Try and find the 3 monkeys . It's a must see.
The architecture and artwork is breathtaking. You can appreciate the cloisters and landscaping more in the spring or summer time.
Definitely don't miss The Treasury downstairs! It's quite literally a treasure trove of some of the museum's best (and shiniest) objects!
Beautiful in the fall!
The most beautiful place inside and put. Once you walk in your taken back in time.
The Cloisters are located in a secluded park garden resembling a real Cloister with a fine collection of Medieval and Renaissance art.

Not encouraging of bikers - even though there's a bike path all the way up there, there are no bike racks and they required me to check my small canvas backpack (aka my purse)
Unicorn tapestries are my favorite
