Not visited as often as many other places, so it's not nearly as mobbed. Architecturally gorgeous and a great escape from the madness. As a native New Yorker, I love this place.

I love the peacefulness of this place and the displays are spectacular. A wonderful getaway from the city. Not really for children as they would not really appreciate the art/pieces on display.

There are stunning views from here and a lot of religious artifacts are kept in the museum. Look out for events, sometimes the museum has wine nights or Friday events!

This January my wife and I went to NYC for our vacation. One of the things she ran across was the Cloisters museum in northern Manhattan above the Hudson river. I wasn't really excited about it but she was so we went thinking we were...More

Step out of time and experience an elegant New York and a medieval Europe together, topped with gorgeous views of the Hudson and the palisade cliffs of New Jersey.

The archways, carvings, and history alone make this a worthwhile trip! Highly recommend it! and there is a small cafe for sandwiches, coffee, baked goods.

Very expensive and a royal pain to get to. But a truly unique experience of medieval art and architecture.And a stunning view. Just don't bring the kids. It's not for them. It's best on a warm spring day when the gardens start to bloom.

Lots of very cool religious art here, and away from the crowds in midtown. A great little retreat, but it's a decent walk from the subway, and it's REALLY far uptown...

I hadn’t been to the Cloisters since I was a little girl, and I was pleasantly surprised to see that the magic lives on. The art and religious artifacts of Middle Ages are unique for Western audiences, I think, because they are close enough to...More

From Times Square, enter at 8th Av and take the A train to 190 Street. Take the elevator out, where it is a 10-15 minute walk to the museum. From Rockefeller Center, take the B or D train to 59 St - Columbus Circle... More
