Thanks to my NY host, I got to spend a good couple of hours at this fabulous museum. A bit out of the usual tourist route, it is well worth the visit. While it comes under the umbrella of the overwhelming Metropolitan Museum of New York, the Cloisters collection, herb garden and various cloisters themselves bare witness to some serious... More

I've been to the MET 50+ times, but only here once. It's a trek but so worth it!! This collection is incredible and the scenery makes it feel like you are no where near NYC. Very peaceful and you can spend 5 hours here easily.

This is the most amazingly beautiful place to go to get away from the city for a day and find some quiet, beauty and serenity. I like to go and just wander around, and sit on one of the benches and relax. The art and buildings are gorgeous, and you can go there over and over and always find something... More

It is cool and dark in the recreated chapels. Beautiful views of the Hudson River. Herb and flower gardens are all in full bloom. A peaceful respite from the hot and humid streets of the city. The Trie Cafe also serves food that was prepared during the 1300's. A crusty splash of dessicated avocado and turkey, sprinkled with a monastic... More

that contain European medieval architecture, sculpture and decorative arts. The collection is now part of the Metropolitan Museum of Art. The Unicorn Tapestries were once a part of Rockefeller's private collection; these became the foundation and core of the Cloisters collection.

This is one of the most romantic, unique museums in a city with wonderful museums. My kids loved the unicorn tapestries. I loved the beautiful park and lovely view.
