Suggested Admission at the The Met Cloisters; Free Admission for Members, Patrons and Children (under 12) - see INFO below. The Met Cloisters, which opened to the public in 1938, is the branch of The Metropolitan Museum of Art devoted to the art and architecture of medieval Europe. Located in Fort Tryon Park in northern Manhattan, on a spectacular four-acre lot overlooking the Hudson River, the modern museum building is not a copy of any specific medieval structure but is rather an ensemble informed by a selection of historical precedents, with a deliberate combination of ecclesiastical and secular spaces arranged in chronological order. Elements from medieval cloistersSaint-Michel-de-Cuxa, Saint-Guilhem-le-Dsert, Trie-sur-Base, Froville, and elements once thought to have come from Bonnefont-en-Commingesand from other sites in Europe have been incorporated into the fabric of the building.
