The Cloisters – A Hidden Gem in New York City

High atop a hill, overlooking the Hudson River in northern Manhattan’s Fort Tryon Park sits the Cloisters. The Cloisters is a branch of the Metropolitan Museum of Art dedicated to the art and architecture of medieval Europe. The Cloisters features a museum of art that houses over 5,000 works of art, including sculptures and stained glass as well as magnificent gardens. Be sure to grab your camera as you explore beautifully recreated flower and herb gardens of the Middle Ages.
