Why locals recommend it
Take the A train to northern Manhattan to visit the Cloisters, a branch of the Met dedicated to medieval European art and architecture. Located on four acres, the museum of five cloistered abbeys has great views of the Hudson River and George Washington Bridge, and the gardens are a quiet display of medieval life. Concerts at the museum’s Fuentiduena Chapel sound like the echoes of some other time and place far away from New York City. It’s worth planning your visit around one.

Best collection of medieval art in the USA! Only a short distance from our location you are able to take in the gorgeous skyline from this museum as well.

Straight to the top! The Cloisters is some weird medieval monastery that I never understood but it is a really nice place to ride a bike or have a picnic. Inwood

A remarkable historical sight surrounded by rolling natural hills--within Manhattan! Often houses art exhibits.
