Best time to go is during the spring summer and early fall when they have the gardens open. So peaceful and just a beautiful collection!
Best museum of medieval art in North America.
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 ;)
This place is a gem. The medieval artifacts transport you back in time.
You don't need to go when it's warm. Most is indoors
Unicorn tapestries -a personal,and private time ,shared there with a friend.
Entry is price is only a suggested donation. You can pay what you think.
Check out the unicorn tapestries, and the espalier trees in the garden!
Do t miss the trees on the veranda, they're rad.
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.
Oh wow! This museum amazes me every time. I love anything medieval. Thank you Manhattan.
Wow, what a place. You wouldn't think you're in New York. It feels like the south of France! Did you know this is the only museum of medieval art in America? This is a must !
Just a lovely day for art and gardens.
Great museum wonderful collections
Amazing scenic views and fascinating exhibits.
Hidden gem in northern Manhatten!
Incredible collection, pillaged from Europe. The tapestries are particularly stunning, and look out for the pear trees in the garden.
Great views of the Hudson in a scenic spot. Beware if you're trying to bike up here. There are hills
It is so beautiful! So many hidden treasures!
Amazing medieval art museum with a beautiful view and park
The museum is a collection of medieval art. Not too extensive, it can be completed in under 2 hours. Enjoy the views on the Hudson from the outdoor gardens.
For those who like medieval art it's the place to visit. The cloister's castle was built to show the medieval architecture. Beautiful gardens with plants that were used back than for medicine.
Explore Fort Tryon if you want something different to do in the city. Walk up from 190th and get some amazing views of the GWB
It has great beauty. I prob don't suggest kids coming bc (no offense) tbh, can be rowdy, boisterous so (haha) no trouble makers. The garden has rlly cool things there and there is more 2 c 4 urself.😃
Love it! Beautiful. theres an m4 bus that goes directly.from and to the metropolitan. If you access the cloisters you can go to the met on the same day as well!
Kind of a long ride to get here but totally worth it. You can see everything in 2 hours if you want but allow longer to tour the gardens.
This is one of the most gorgeous places uptown. If you like medieval art, make the trek uptown. Make a day of it!
Great place to go to in the spring. The park as well as the museum plus staff are very knowledgeable on the content. Great place to draw and do art studies.
Been going here since I was a kid...love this place!!!
Great museum and scenic views.
Enjoy the outdoor sculptures.
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!
After walking through amazing park you'll find yourself with full of Gothic art.
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.
