During this three-hour walking tour, you'll explore the MET's medieval arts and architecture collection at the Cloisters in Fort Tryon Park. Situated on a hill overlooking the Hudson River, the Cloisters was designed and built in the 1930s, and includes parts from five Eastern European abbeys deconstructed, shipped to the United States, and then reconstructed into a museum like no other.

Your guide on this journey back in time will be an art historian specializing the medieval works, who will take you on a comprehensive tour of the incredible exhibits and gardens housed within. Among the art pieces you will find both religious and secular works, including paintings, altarpieces, carvings, gold and silver, stained glass, illuminated manuscripts, and sculptures.

New York City is about to get medieval on your ... brain.
