The Cloisters is an unique experience in New York City. It's like stepping into a time machine and being transported back into the medieval times. The collection consists of a chapel, and parts from five cloisters from medieval France. Stunningly beautiful works of architecture blended with gardens true to the regions from where these cloisters are from. It is a very peaceful and relaxing experience, it's like a mini-vacation from the hustle and bustle of New York.

The Cloister is a wonderful museum/garden in Harlem. I was so shocked to find out about this place but it is truly an amazing day. One can take forever strolling the gardens and just be awed at how lovely the area is. Overall, I would make a day of this taking the bus from here to the Met and just have one fantastic and interesting day.

If you have ever crossed the George Washington Bridge and wondered what is up on the bluffs on the left side of the bridge heading into Manhattan---its the Cloisters. A secluded wooded area amid the bustle of New York City with a complete monastery and other medieval relics and artifacts make this a must see. If you go to the Metropolitan Museum of Art---this counts on the same ticket--so be sure to stop here too.

This place is amazing. One of the best places to go in the fall. Brought over from Europe on a boat from a long time ago. Every student in New York visits there at least once. A beautiful monastery we can all enjoy. Also, there are hundreds of gorgeous tapestries to see to.

Tourists, this is a must-see on your New York City vacation. On the day we went (we can't guarantee it) it was nearly empty and to just wander about in the cloisters and gardens was one of the highlights of our trip. This is not a seen-it-and-move-on tourist museum, you have to take your time to enjoy the serenity. It is constructed of real old english abbey parts whose abbeys were destroyed.

The Cloisters is located in a beautiful park in upper Manhattan which is a welcome reprieve from the hustle and bustle of the island in general. I loved the medieval tapestry, ancient relics and coffin exhibits and of course, the cloister courtyards. The view from the balcony of the museum is amazing as it overlooks the Hudson. This part of the Met is never as crowded as the main Met on the eastside - very worthy of a visit.

The Cloisters is a great place to check out if you have not done so already! It is a monastary turned museum, that houses several religious artifacts, including the original Unicorn Tapestries! They also house a cafe' that sits by a medieval garden with many plants and herbs from the renaissance.

PROS: Beautiful place. great spring, summer, fall activity. Good date place
CONS:
