Take a Walk Back in Time

What encompasses The Cloisters? The beautiful gardens, located on a hill in Fort Tyron Park, provides striking views of the Hudson River. The garden is four acres in size and exists as the Metropolitan Museum of Art’s dedication to the gardens and architecture of the European Middle Ages. The Cloisters received its name as a reflection of the medieval cloisters that make up the museum. Within the gardens, you can find more than 2,000 demonstrations of architecture and gardening concepts from the Middle Ages.

Based on the same medieval theme as the Metropolitan Museum of Art, visitors can take in the stunningly recreated flower, herb, and plant gardens of the period. The Cloisters offers guided tours for visitors that want to learn more about the gardens and history. After finishing a tour or walking through the gardens, guests can enjoy some food in the Trie Café, found in the gardens and open from May through October.
