Overview

Discover the beauty of The Cloisters museum and gardens, located high atop a hill in northern Manhattan's Fort Tryon Park—only 30 minutes by subway from midtown —devoted to the art and architecture of medieval Europe.

Enjoy unparalleled views of the Hudson River, stroll through enchanting gardens, and see masterpieces of medieval sculpture, stained glass, tapestries, and more.

Assembled from architectural elements, both domestic and religious, that date from the 12th through the 15th century, the building and its cloistered gardens are treasures in themselves, effectively part of the collection housed there. The Cloisters' collection comprises approximately 3,000 works of art from medieval Europe, dating from about the ninth to the 16th century.

The Cloisters offers gallery talks and other programs for adults at noon and 2:00 p.m. every Saturday and on the first Sunday of each month, year-round. These talks are free with Museum admission. In addition, the Museum offers family programs, talks with curators and conservators, and concerts and performances in the twelfth-century Fuentidueña Chapel. Audio guides also are available in English, French, German, and Spanish.

Open from April through October, The Trie Café offers sandwiches, snacks, dessert, cold beverages, and coffee, served outdoors in the French medieval Trie Cloister.
