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.
An excellent example of medieval architecture, art, culture. Nice if you go to the Met because of same day reciprocal-benefits entry...two great museums for the price of one! The enclosed gardens are lovely as is the collection of medieval art and artifacts. Well worth the out of the way excursion. I felt I was no longer in NYC.
I really enjoyed this visit. The place is meant to be a museum, but - at least when we visited - it was quiet and peaceful, and it was really nice to walk around the many rooms and ancient art collections, and just relax. The staff were helpful and kind and took it upon themselves to explain some historical "fun facts" about some pieces to the kids (and to us). They have a relatively small collection, but it's absolutely worth a visit.
Just blew me away. Wow... This place is truly divine. It's a MUST HAVE experience if you are visiting new york or even just live nearby. You have to go. I can't believe it.
I don't how to explain how beautiful this place is. It has me beyond words. I say this not only about the pieces of art within the complex, to which each and everyone are without a doubt priceless, but the building itself is in itself art. A castle which was stripped brick by brick from its location over seas and taken to find a new home in New York. The art here are works built in glorification to religion and history. In respect to the age the building was built in, from statues to caskets this is the museum's for people of history and of the cloth.
