Set within lush Fort Tryon Park in Upper Manhattan, the Met Cloisters museum and garden provides an in-depth look at European medieval art, architecture, and culture. The buildings themselves are works of art, incorporating reconstructed elements of actual medieval French monastic sites—think stained-glass windows and ornate marble columns. In the galleries, visitors will find more than 2,000 pieces ranging from religious sculptures and relics to the intricately woven Unicorn Tapestries. In warm weather, the surrounding grounds and courtyards are just as impressive, with a great view of the Hudson, creating a perfect escape from the hustle of much of the rest of Manhattan. Don't forget: tickets will also include same-day admission to the Met Fifth Avenue and the Met Breuer.
