A Medieval Tour At The Met Cloisters

The Metropolitan Museum of New York is as essential to the city as the yellow cabs and street hot dogs. And just like it shouldn’t be missed- neither should its gorgeous cousin- the Met Cloisters.. If you’re looking to escape to Europe- without leaving the island of Manhattan- then this is the place for you!

The museum is home an amazing collection of artistic works, architecture, and gardens from medieval Europe, and is split between Romanesque and Gothic styles. Visitors can expect to see approximately Two thousand works on display, with everything from metalwork and enamels to tapestries and stained glass.

While the Cloisters are beautiful at any time of year, they are especially breathtaking during the summer. Griffith shows me how the gardens fully enrich the museum experience.
