Visit The Cloisters | NYC Activities
Visiting The Cloisters is an NYC Activity that art and history enthusiasts will love.
The Metropolitan Museum of Art is one of the most impressive art museums in the world, and The Cloisters, which features a stunning collection of Medieval art and objects, is an arm of that famed Museum.
About Visiting The Cloisters:
Visiting The Cloisters is a popular NYC Activity, and visitors to our Manhattan Hotel who love art and history should not miss this popular Attraction. While what’s inside is certainly important, the building that houses The Cloisters is in itself an important feature.
The building was assembled from pieces from the 12th through 15th centuries. The very bricks that house The Cloister’s collection tell a story, and that adds to the overall experience of a visit to this Museum in New York City.
More than 2,000 objects are included in The Cloisters collection. The art and architecture of Medieval Europe are on full display here, and the fact that the Museum focuses on such a small niche makes a visit here a unique and memorable experience. For many visitors, the lovely cloistered gardens are a highlight of this NYC Activity.
In addition to The Cloisters permanent collection, they also offer a number of interesting exhibits throughout the year. Examples of past exhibits include Reclaiming Saint James, A Tasty Take on Medieval Rosary Beads, and Celebrating Life and Death with Rubies. A full list of current and upcoming exhibits is available on The Cloisters website.
