You can feel the ages come to life in this great facility. A nice little walk from the local subway and up a hill into the quiet and reverential cloisters. The beautiful architecture, sculptures, and art work establish it as a place of learning and...More

Many New Yorkers have never been there, and that's a shame. You will always see visitors from foreign countries there, so the rest of the world knows about this gem that is less well known to Americans. Easy to get to by public transportation (the...More

Although outside of immediate New York City, this is a great place to visit as it is not usually very crowded and well worth the while with wonderful displays and a beautiful garden.

What a surprise to visit medieval Europe in Manhattan. Too bad it is a bit far by bus or metro, but it is worth the trip.

This museum wasn't crowded on a Friday morning. We arrived just after opening. The recommended admission is $25 but, visitors can pay any amount. At noon we enjoyed a light (albeit expensive) snack in the court yard cafe next to the garden fountain.

I've started trying to explore the lesser-known sights of NYC, and this was highly recommended... it did not disappoint. The park it is in is worth the trek uptown by itself. Gorgeous Hudson River views. I found the Museum itself to be an amazing building....More

This visit was my first time visiting the Cloisters and I was amazed by how well the displays were maintained. The craftsmanship of artisans of the past will never be seen again. Very nice place to visit if you want to getaway from the house...More

Truly stunning architecture, artifacts in a beautiful setting. Somewhat smaller than I had expected--quality emphasized over quantity. May be difficult for mobility-impaired--lots of stairs. We walked up from the subway through Fort Tryon--it's a bit of a hike. We broke it up by having lunch...More

This magnificent collection is a direct result of the benevolence of John D Rockefeller, Jr. thanks John! Take the A train to 190 then walk to the property. The stonework and landscaping is first class. That's only the beginning. If you like medieval art, you'll...More

There is nothing much to do for a 5 year old. There are a lot of stair climbing. There is nothing interactive for a toddler.

Hello, and thank you for your question. Mother's Day can be a great day to visit The Met! We recommend arriving earlier in the day if you would like more of the Museum to yourself, but it is a fine day for a visit. Please... More
