Why locals love it

The Cloisters are a branch of the Metropolitan Museum of Art that exhibits an extensive collection of art, architecture and artifacts from Medieval Europe. The building was assembled from architectural elements from the 12th through the 15th century, taking visitors on a trip back in time, and features a serene cloistered garden.

Why you should visit it

Located in the middle of Fort Tryon Park facing the Hudson River, you'll enjoy the peaceful environment and scenic views. You can enjoy the medieval artifacts inside the museum, and then take in the beautiful surroundings with an outdoor picnic.

Special tip

Look for the Unicorn tapestry, which appeared briefly in the feature film "Harry Potter and The Half Blood Prince."
