The Cloisters

Bonnefort Cloister #1 Columns in Cuxa Cloister Boppard Room

The Cloisters museum exhibits an art from the medieval Europe. This museum is different than others. The exibit space is mostly original architectural fragments imported from Europe, which have been incorporated into one big building resembling a cloister. Located on the Hudson River Bank, the museum gives an authentic feel from Middle Ages. For me this is not just one more interesting place in Manhattan. Visit to the museum is like travel to France or Italy.
