This a beautiful place, filled with history and color. When you first get off of the subway, you walk through Fort Tyron Park, which ha some of the best views. You can see both rivers, the bridge, and the Metro North subway line. The fort itself is impressive and calm, a really great park to bring your family. Once in the Cloisters, you can pay whatever you want (It is a Met museum) so this is an affordable family trip. there are four actual cloisters, which are outdoor courtyards that the nuns/priests used to meditate around. Throughout the halls is artwork and historical artifacts which, while centered in Christianity, are very interesting for all types of people, especially history buffs. I highly recommend, especially in the summer (I went in the winter, which is cool too, but more open in the summer).
Small museum deep in the Heights. Perfect for those days when the weather is nice so that you can walk Fort Tryon Park (where the museum is located). This museum features a few gardens, so if you're a person who is into that come in the spring. The art is mostly medieval/Roman Catholic /Christian. Architecture is amazing. Admission is pay as you wish! Definitely worth the trip. Great place to read or write as well!
It's was great,truly unbelievable. I suggest you follow a tour they are free and you can get lots of information. The detail work is beautiful. One of my favorite museums in NYC
Not a huge fan of medieval art, but enjoy its architecture, so my art hist prof convinced me to go. It was January, snowing, I trekked by myself via the Metro (train)... Not fun to get there. Happy I didn't pay an exuberant price. The stuff is still cool, but seeing bits & pieces of other buildings installed here gives me conflicted feelings. It's like Frankenstein. A doorway to a ruined church here, a few archways... I guess it's preserving history, but not enough effort was made to recognize the building as a whole it once belonged to. Didn't spend more than 1 hr here.
The museum is rooms and rooms of medieval art. Mostly religious and from Spain. Every pillar, every archway, every corner! were built to look like the medieval times. I mentioned I love the archways, right? I also love the big room that looks like an old church. High ceilings, lots of history, small museum but worth a look. I wouldn't say "This is New York must-see!" but if you have a free afternoon, do come here!
