“Overlooked”
Reviewed 20 August 2014

A great piece of New York City history. Not too many tourists make their way up there but should. The vistas and architecture make this place a real find.

“Great Views, Great Art”
Reviewed 20 August 2014

Once you get to Ft Tryon Park, it's a short and scenic walk to the museum. Great displays and wonderful herb garden.

“Hamlet in the Bronx -- Northern part of Met Museum”
Reviewed 20 August 2014

Beautiful and interesting, but difficult to get to. Very long bus ride or shorter subway ride and a hike OR drive, but few parking spaces. Is included in Met membership.

“Great hideaway in NYC”
Reviewed 19 August 2014

People often think they're trading in trees for steel buildings in NYC. For the most part, you are. But when you're at the Cloisters, tucked away far uptown in Manhattan within Fort Tryon Park, it makes a great hideaway spot from all the hustle and bustle of the city. On a clear day, enjoy the beautiful views of the Hudson and relax in the courtyards/ gardens. And course, browse through the wonderful curated collection. It's a quick ride up to 190th st on the A train and a short walk, or a bus ride on M4, to main entrance. You can easily spend 3 hours here. Recommended admission is $25 but you can pay whatever you want.

“Fascinating”
Reviewed 19 August 2014

The medieval treasures at the Cloisters are phenomenal. The doorways and ceilings are often from old castles and churches. AND every single display was clearly marked. I really liked that.
