The place is on the uphill of Fort Tyrone Park. You can not visit it. You will not be missing too much. Rather drab and uninteresting.

This is an interesting spot, located in Fort Tryon Park. Pretty location. Easy parking. Medieval art and architecture from the 1100’s forward. Very pretty architecture that you probably won’t see anywhere else outside of Europe. I’m glad I went to see this, but it’s Eurocentric and unexciting if you’re not into this type of thing. If you’re into religious artifacts, the pre-Henry VII set—this is your place. Don’t get me wrong—it’s impressive, but I would rather explore the Brooklyn Museum, MoMA PS1, or the New York Historical Society. Would make a nice spot for browsing the museum, taking a walk, and maybe having a picnic.

The Cloisters provides a wonderful respite from the city. Medieval exhibits from tapestry, to stained glass windows, statuary and more. Breath-taking to thing of the creative and historical challenge to bring these artifacts here to be enjoyed by the public. Actually easy to get to via subway, but it is a long way up from the subway stop. There are 'ramps' with switchbacks so not all stairs as others reviewed. Met also officers shuttle, but we didn't use. Bring water bottle and snacks. Docent in the "Unicorn" room shared terrific info about the tapestries. A wonderful day. Get tickets in advance, COVID protocols followed.

I have been to the Cloisters many times. The setting is in a beautiful park and the structure makes you feel like you are in a time warp.. The tapestries, works of art and concerts are outstanding. The Cloisters are not to be missed.

The weather today was warm, bright and dry so we took the subway to northern Manhattan near the George Washington Bridge and visited The Cloisters, a museum specializing in European medieval architecture, sculpture and decorative arts. It is set in a green and lush area adjacent to the Palisades with views of the Hudson River and NJ. The Cloisters is part of the Metropolitan Museum of Art.
