  • So extremely beautiful and absolutely worth visiting. And even revisiting. Because its stunning. HOWEVER, you must be prepared for two things. 1. There are absolutely no signs as you walk throughout the park to direct you. On top of this, there is construction that blocks you at a few different turns. So all you can do is ask clueless passerby or look up the hill and take your best guess. This led to it taking us probably twenty minutes from the park's entrance to the Cloisters. If you are able to call ahead and talk with someone about what Park entrance you'll be using, it would probably be very helpful. We had a much easier time getting out (probably only a five minute walk). 2. Grumpy people at the main desk. Why be grumpy?? But if you go prepared to jump trough these hoops, you'll be absolutely fine. And bring your camera because picture taking is allowed!

  • Really nice public place in Washington Heights. The gardens and surroundings are a very nice walk. The museum itself has a good collection, especially the treasury. The views of the Hudson from inside the museum are very nice.

  • I love the cloisters because it's removed from downtown and walking through Fort Tryon park can still be almost serene and peaceful (despite the raging highway just to the west). The actual cloisters in the museum are lovely in the off-hours, you may actually feel as though you are in Italy. Don't bother with the cloister cafe, it's overpriced and the coffee is truly shameful. Bring a reusable water bottle with some nice white wine hidden in it and enjoy the flowers and the herb garden.

  • I've been to the Cloisters dozens of times and love it. The rooms are set out very nicely and it's a great feeling to walk around among the works. Free and easy parking around the Cloisters. In the spring and summer they have a little "cafe" for salads and soft drinks. An occasion lecture or concert is a bonus. The greeting staff is kind and helpful but THE SECURITY GUARDS ARE NOT FRIENDLY AT ALL and seem to go out of their way to bother you. I'm a member of the Met so entrance is free but it's certainly worth the price of admission.

  • Visited during the week, there are multiple gardens to see and the museum itself has a good variety of religious art on display. If you are hungry, there is a small stand offering sandwiches and coffee, no cooked food and it's not an actual cafe like the website made it sound. I think it would require at least 3 hours or so to visit the entire thing.
