The Cloisters, New York City Reviews - Write a Review
Hard to find, but well worth the trip. Exquisite medieval tapestries and architectural pieces. Lots of stairs and steep inclines for group tour entrance. Restrooms are handicap accessible. But you will need security to get you there if you can't do stairs. No elevators for the public otherwise.
It is awesome. You become a time traveler and you can see and feel the spirit of each artist. You also meet so many wonderful people who are of like minds. And, of course. I have nothing but praise for every employee. They are all warm, welcoming, helpful and knowledgeable. It is always hard for me to leave. The MET Cloisters is a definite must visit. They even have a gift shop that will surely have something for you.
It’s a bit of a trip and can be hard to find but it was well worth it. It’s a beautiful museum and I definitely haven’t been to one like this ever. A lot of great pieces. I just wish it didn’t close so early.
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.
