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.
What can I say!!!!from the moment I exited the subway, on to the scenic walk overlooking the Hudson all the way to the castle I was awed. The smells of Nature mixed with the beauty of the surroundings kept me mesmerized. In the castle every room was a sight to behold. Beautiful tapestries, artifacts and relics depicted scenes from centuries ago. The treasury also houses a lot of beautiful and carefully preserved treasures.I would definitely be back again and recommend everyone interested in Religious and Medieval History to come pay a visit.
The cloister is part of the metropolitan museum of arts and a bit outside of the main attractions. Nevertheless worth the trip. There are free tours (included in the admission price) at 1, 2, and 3 pm and our tour guide was very knowledgeable. Don't miss the coffee shop downstairs. There is an amazing little garden. Plan some time to walk through the park before or afterwards.
The Cloisters is a European Medieval art museum in Fort Tryon in northern Manhattan. It is part of the world famous Metropolitan Museum of Art. I'm not very familiar with the story of who the donors were who founded this museum, but in addition to providing the artifacts AND the architecture (whole buildings taken from France and other places in Europe) they bought up all the land on the New Jersey side of the Hudson River, and protected it from development. So as you gaze out the windows of this Medieval Cloister, you have an incredibly beautiful, rustic view of the Hudson. The art work and the artifacts in this museum are often stunning and breathtakingly beautiful. I highly recommend a visit to this almost mystical place in Manhattan.
The Hearst Castle of the east. A building specifically built like a medieval cloister to house medieval art. Completely built chapels with the European art work making up the parts. Halls filled with tapestries, including the famous unicorn tapestries. Stained glass work in the windows. Fine restaurant as well. We spent the entire day and could go back again to see the rest.
