Is the Met Cloisters a medieval structure?

Not exactly. First built in 1914, the Met Cloisters is an amalgamation and imitation of 12th–15th century architecture and landscaping. In 1958 the museum added a limestone apse from a 12th-century Spanish church, lending some additional authenticity.

What’s special about the Met Cloister’s gardens?

The landscape features plants—curated from medieval texts—that were commonly grown in the Middle Ages.

Is there anything else I can do while I’m up there?

You can hang around Fort Tryon Park, view the nearby George Washington Bridge and Hudson River, or eat and drink at the New Leaf Restaurant & Bar and the sand-scaped La Marina.
