This museum, a satellite of The MET, houses the best collection of medieval art in the US. It is located in North Manhattan in the middle of the gorgeous, and relatively unknown to tourists, Fort Tryon Park (a lookout point in the War of Independence).The Cloisters is designed to resemble a monastery and offers gorgeous views of Manhattan and the Hudson River. The famous Unicorn Tapestries and Campin's Mérode Altarpiece are housed here. Enjoy a stroll through their medieval garden or a concert.
