Private Guided Tours of The Cloisters Museum

Entirely devoted to medieval European art, architecture and gardens, The Met Cloisters Museum will provide you with a rich, evocative experience. You’ll encounter reassembled portions of original European medieval buildings, gorgeous gardens, the treasured Unicorn Tapestries, and stunning stained glass windows. Located in peaceful Fort Tyron Park on a magnificent bluff overlooking the Hudson River, The Met Cloisters offers a respite from the bustling city, and a charming visit to Europe’s past.

During The Met Costume Institute’s 2018 Exhibit, “Heavenly Bodies: Fashion and the Catholic Imagination” one will be able to explore the show while touring The Met Cloisters museum galleries. The exhibition is throughout the main galleries from May 10 until October 8, 2018.

Your Met Cloisters tour can focus on your interests and passions. We promise to keep it engaging and the conversation flowing at the right level for everyone along, whether they be adults or kids.
