Often forgotten about because of its upper Manhattan location, The Cloisters is like walking into another place and time. As America’s only museum dedicated to medieval art, The Cloisters envelopes visitors in the Middle Ages with gardens, tapestries, and paintings from the time period. Though The Cloisters is an extension of the Metropolitan Museum of Art, it retains its own powerful identity as an iconic cultural institution in the heart of New York City. Set in beautiful Fort Tryon Park right on the Hudson River, this museum should not be overlooked. The institution, spanning about four acres in size, houses over 2,000 unique artworks in various galleries. The largest gallery holds German, Spanish, and Italian paintings dating back to the fifteenth and sixteenth centuries.
