On Sunday, we visited The Cloisters, a branch of the Met in northern Manhattan which showcases medieval art (and is just a short subway ride from us!). Both the art and the setting were lovely. The museum itself was made to look like medieval architecture. Some parts are new, while others were reconstructed from pieces of old cloisters shipped over from Europe. The property contains several gardens and a beautiful view of the Hudson River! The museum has a suggested donation, but is pay as you wish.
More photos after the jump...

I was intrigued by this guy, who turned out to be an acrobat.
There were even some medieval cobwebs!
