This is a very well done reproduction of a set of cloisters displaying a good collection of authentic artifacts (mostly religious). It is a voluntary donation entry - although they will 'suggest' an amount. We paid $20 for a group of 3 which seemed about...More

We walked through a beautiful park to get to the Cloisters. And then there is this monastery/church like stone building overlooking the Hudson River. And inside a quiet, uncrowded museum is a fascinating collection of religious art and portions of medieval monasteries and churches that...More

A lot of folks don't seem to know about The Cloisters but you should go! We wandered up through the park paths to the entrance. The views across the river were gorgeous with the fall leaves. The Cloisters offered loads to see and the courtyards/gardens...More

Maybe this is a place to visit in the summer (or sunshine). It is quite a trek to get there, easy to take the wrong subway line....but you get there, and walk through Fort Tryon park, and enjoy the views of the Hudson....and you arrive...More

You will feel like you are back in the days of old with chants and a collection of rare artifacts from the time of the knights.

Finally visited here after years of wanting to. Beautiful setting made even better with fall colors and views of the Hudson. Many rooms of exhibits but the stonework and stained glass were the best part. Well worth a visit!!

From Times Square, enter at 8th Av and take the A train to 190 Street. Take the elevator out, where it is a 10-15 minute walk to the museum. From Rockefeller Center, take the B or D train to 59 St - Columbus Circle... More
