Pay-What-You-Wish Admission at the The Met Cloisters for New York State residents and NY, NJ, CT students; Free Admission for Members, Patrons and Children (under 12). 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 Cloisters opened to the public on May 10, 1938. In 1958, the 12th-century limestone apse from the church in Fuentiduea, Spain, arrived to become part of the structure. The Treasury, which contains objects created for liturgical celebrations, personal devotions, and secular uses, was renovated in 1988. Major improvement to the infrastructure, climatization, and gallery spaces has continued to this day, including a new skylight in the cloister from Saint-Guilhem-le-Dsert, a new objects conservation lab, the preservation of limestone windows in the Early Gothic and Late Gothic Halls, and many others.
