As at the Met in Central Park, you have the choice of what you pay. This is worth the recommended entry, particularly as you can take a bus from right outside and alight at the Met on 5th Avenue with no extra cost other than the bus fare. Go on; do it!

This is an incredibly beautiful building, which houses an impressive collection of medieval European art. They have a seasonal cafe if you want to sit and enjoy the beautiful vistas while sipping tea or coffee.

This tranquility so close to the Bigapple's engines of commerce and unthrottled human endeavour is a paradox.

I would recommend both the guided tour of the gardens and the guided tour of the collection. Both were free after museum entry. Both guides were enthusiastic and knowledgeable and very responsive to questions. The museum is a lovely cool oasis on a hot day and there is an interesting mix of architectural artefacts as well as paintings, tapestries and... More

My parents took me here a lot when I was a child, this is one of the most interesting museums I have ever been in. My favorite are the tapestries and gardens, I suggest taking a guided tour of the collection.

As you enter the Cloisters you are transported back to the medieval times in Europe. You wonder with each step "How did they do this?" The artwork and statues within the stone walls create a wonderful mastic. The actual prices of art along with the views along the Hudson River remind you are back in New York. You can stroll...

The melding of the ruined cloisters has been done with thought and care. It is beautifully presented to enhance the Met's Medieval collection to perfection. Travelling there by the Metro was easy and alowed a walk through superb park like gardens which provides a lovely contrast to bustle of a big city.

I've been in NY for 10+ times but this was my first time at The Cloisters and it is a beautiful place. It takes some time to go there but it is definitely worth it, you can go by bus (M4) or subway (A line). The place is not full of tourists like Downtown attractions. It is pay what you... More

I have been to the Cloisters several times. I went on a recent Sunday when the temperatures were in the mid-90s. What a great place to be! A great park weaves around the museum with great views of the soothing river. Combine the location with the cool interior - dark, solemn (yet with life), informative and lovely ancient fountains -...
