Well worth the exploration of transport and hour bus ride up. Such peace and beauty in one spot. It was like being transported to another continent in another time.

Walking up to The Cloisters through Fort Tyron Park in the spring is the perfect introduction to a tranquil museum with an outstanding architectural collection. Quite other-worldly.

Incredible - a bit out of the way but well worth the trip. Little restaurant up the road fabulous - wish I could remember the name.

It is seldom crowded and the recorded tour is excellent. The surrounding park is quiet and a lovely walk.

The Cloisters is a hidden gem in the treasure trove of NYC museums. It's very accessible by public transportation and car. Arrive early to secure convenient free parking and avoid potentially large crowds (depending on the day). It's a beautifully appointed venue with a cornucopia of medieval art and reconstructions. The "Treasury" on the lower level was fascinating and the gardens beautiful even though it was early spring. For the international guest, the admission cost is a suggestion. Pay what you want or can but be fair. It's worth the price and you may visit MOMA the same day with your proof of admission. If you have the time and the inclination, there is great little restaurant, New Leaf, only a 7 minute walk from the museum. Ask to sit in the tent and enjoy the views.
