The Met Cloisters

The Met Cloisters is a second location of the Metropolitan Museum of Art, located in Upper Manhattan, that focuses on European medieval art. The museum is partially comprised of four actual French cloisters that were disassembled, brought to New York, and painstakingly reassembled here. How cool is that? Perched high atop a hill and overlooking the Hudson River, the Met Cloisters is a peaceful and tranquil place to wander and take in the beautifully maintained gardens, the original European medieval architecture, and the many incredible pieces of art on display (the unicorn tapestries are one of the most famous examples!).
