Suggested Admission at the The Met Cloisters; Free Admission for Members, Patrons and Children (under 12) - see INFO below. The Met Cloisters, located on four acres overlooking the Hudson River in northern Manhattan's Fort Tryon Park, is the branch of the Museum dedicated to the art, architecture, and gardens of medieval Europe. The new Cloisters museum building was designed by Charles Collens (18731956) who, together with Henry C. Pelton, designed the Riverside Church in New York City. Joseph Breck (18851933), a curator of decorative arts and assistant director of The Metropolitan Museum of Art, and James J. Rorimer (19051966), who would later be named the Museum's director, were primarily responsible for overseeing the building's design and construction. Balancing Collens's interpretation with strict attention to historical accuracy, Breck and Rorimer created in the galleries a clear and logical flow from the Romanesque (ca. 1000ca. 1150) through the Gothic period (ca. 11501520).
