Beautifully situated at the northern tip of Manhattan in lush Fort Tryon Park, the Cloisters is a truly unforgettable experience: an art museum where you’ll see famed works, but also a true adventure that will engage you on so many levels. Best of all, it’s conveniently accessible via subway, bus or car—after all, Manhattan as an island isn’t really very long. A branch of the Metropolitan Museum of Art (whose main collection is located on Museum Mile on upper Fifth Avenue), the Cloisters is home to most of the museum’s Medieval European collection. Let’s start with the building itself. It cuts an impressive profile as you approach it from the south. Built in the 1930's and incorporating many ancient arches, windows and other elements, it’s a museum piece in and of itself. And then, within its walls you’ll find so much to behold: gorgeous religious artifacts, stunning outdoor gardens, elegant tapestries and altars. And the view is one of the big stars here too: Step out onto one of the Museum’s elevated terraces, and you’ll find picture-perfect views of the Hudson River as it expands and heads north. There’s a charming café if you’re in the mood for a bite or a relaxing coffee. All in all? This is a cultural journey that you’ll remember forever.
