The Cloisters

Of all the castles, museums, cathedrals and other places in America that are medieval this one is without a doubt the most medieval of them all. I will explain.

The Cloisters is part of the New York Metropolitan Museum of Art and a scant couple of miles away from it. And it is a very special museum. It is pretty much an actual medieval structure. Parts of the building complex were actually purchased from authentic medieval buildings in Europe, disassembled and reassembled here into what is called "The Cloisters".





One of the beautiful things about the cloisters is the interior garden that is open. You can walk all the way around it under cover or you can walk out into it. And they maintained the authenticity of it by cultivating plants that were cultivated during the medieval time period.
