The Met Cloisters, a component of the Metropolitan Museum of Art, is nestled in the lush greenery of Fort Tryon Park in Upper Manhattan. Unlike its famed cousin on Fifth Avenue, the Cloisters provides a one-of-a-kind experience that transports guests to the heart of medieval Europe.


Art and Architecture in Harmony

The Met Cloisters is more than simply a museum; it’s a breathtaking architectural masterpiece. Charles Collens designed the museum, which integrates features from five historic French cloisters, resulting in a coherent style that reflects the creative period it commemorates. The Romanesque and Gothic architectural styles are seen throughout, from the tranquil gardens and majestic terraces to the arched passageways and private galleries.


A Treasure Trove of Medieval Art

Step inside the Met Cloisters, and you’ll be greeted by a vast collection of European medieval art. From exquisite tapestries and illuminated manuscripts to stunning sculptures and religious artifacts, the museum offers a glimpse into the artistic achievements of the Middle Ages. The collection is further enriched by the inclusion of three medieval chapels, with the 12th-century Spanish Fuentiduena Chapel being a particular highlight.

A Tranquil Escape

The Met Cloisters isn’t just about the art and architecture; it’s also a place of tranquility. The carefully designed gardens, bursting with seasonal blooms, offer a peaceful respite from the hustle and bustle of New York City. Visitors can wander through these landscaped havens, imagining themselves transported to a bygone era.

Whether you’re a passionate art enthusiast or simply curious about medieval history, the Met Cloisters is a must-visit destination. This unique museum offers a captivating blend of art, architecture, and history, transporting you to a different time and place.
