MET Cloisters Museum
In the streets of Upper Manhattan, your travel group will find a seriously unique, seriously gorgeous NYC must-see museum, The Cloisters.
A branch of the MET, the Cloisters is a medieval architecture museum on Margaret Corbin Drive that is named after the European columns, or cloisters, in the center of the establishment. And that’s not the only European works of art you will see here, the Cloisters providing guests with European medieval art, architecture, sculpture, and decorative arts throughout the entire museum on a quite impressive scale.
Designed in the manner of a French Monastery, this building was first founded here in 1938. Some argue that the location of the building outdoes the collection inside, the Cloisters sitting on 4 gorgeously manicured acres overlooking the Hudson. The outdoor gardens within what is technically considered Fort Tyron Park present a ‘harmonious and evocative setting for the over 2,000 exceptional artworks and architectural elements from the medieval west.’, the absolute perfect stop for a group tour!
