    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.
