An interesting place if you like medieval architecture, quite low key, probably not ever crowded. Relaxing. Built in the 1930’s, the building is a modern (1930’s modern of course) reconstruction of a monastery. But, built into the fabric of the building are actual components (...More

The Met Cloisters has a beautiful museum, walking trails, and gardens in upper Manhattan. Take the A train to the 190th street stop and walk across the street. Amazing medieval art and building. Wonderful restaurant on site too.

The Cloisters is the Met's medieval collection--and it's not just medieval paintings and sculptures--there are entire chapels here, brought over from Europe piece by piece. It's a little piece of Europe in Manhattan. Well worth the time and trip.

The Cloisters has an amazing collection. I really love the pieces in the Treasury. The unicorn tapestries are terrific. You need about an hour to see everything. A must do in NYC.

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.
