This area of Manhattan is VERY quiet and peaceful. Beautiful grounds. The cloisters have interesting artifacts and is haunted.

Although getting there could be a challenge, take the subway and walk. Great views of the city and the Hudson river.

This place is located at the top of Manhattan and its worth going to just see the views of the Hudson river alone, a lovely place with some amazing artefacts from medieval europe, well worth a visit however be warned it is about 10-15 minutes walk from the subway and if you get the bus this can take an hour...

A beautiful place to visit on a nice day, Very different, architecture is fabulous. Great place but you need at least four hours to walk through. Very different, nothing else like it within city limits.

A haunting and beautiful place to spend a couple of hours away from the hustle and bustle of Manhattan. You feel taken away from modern times and transplanted in the Middle Ages.

Making a trip up to the Cloisters is well worth it. The architecture is beautiful and it is like stepping back in time. If you are a history buff or like a nice peaceful afternoon spent among architecture and gardens, definitely check this place out.

As a New York native, I've been wanting to see this place. Trains were slow so spent 25$ to uber all the way up. When we got there, our immediate reaction was "I don't get it." The experience was spoiled for us as we were berated by a museum worker who accused us of taking "staged" photos. FYI, apparently taking... More

Easy enough to get to on A train. A bit of a walk from train to museum so dress warmly. The museum building is impressive as are the garden cloisters. Transports you to another time. Enjoyed the audiotour tour very much although didnt always work on my phone. They have a guided highlight tour every day except Saturday when I... More

A classic. The art is varied. The building is gorgeous. And the gardens are beautiful. The walk through the park is a treat.
