Waarom lokale bewoners het aanbevelen
Take the A train to northern Manhattan to visit the Cloisters, a branch of the Met dedicated to medieval European art and architecture. Located on four acres, the museum of five cloistered abbeys has great views of the Hudson River and George Washington Bridge, and the gardens are a quiet display of medieval life. Concerts at the museum’s Fuentiduena Chapel sound like the echoes of some other time and place far away from New York City. It’s worth planning your visit around one.
Tips van locals
Very serene museum, great art, meditative outdoor area, and nice view of the Hudson River.
Best collection of medieval art in the USA! Only a short distance from our location you are able to take in the gorgeous skyline from this museum as well.
Straight to the top! The Cloisters is some weird medieval monastery that I never understood but it is a really nice place to ride a bike or have a picnic. Inwood
A remarkable historical sight surrounded by rolling natural hills--within Manhattan! Often houses art exhibits.
If you are history buff, this is the place to go, amazing castle looking museum with lots of history to tell.

“There's a poor side and a rich side of these 2 side by side docking/fishing areas. We visit both and sometimes eat at the restaurant, fly kites on one of the docks, stick our toes in the sand and occasionally have splashed in the river. In the summer there are sometimes 2 swans who come to visit. ”
