The Daoist Museum of Art at the north end of Manhattan is a hidden treasure. A hilltop overlooks the Hudson River and Trenburg Park trees. The Monastery Museum of Art was built from the ruins of medieval castles and monasteries in Europe with stone by stone. Inside, there are walled gardens and spacious exhibition rooms that display some of the Metropolitan Museum's precious collections of medieval art in a magical setting. It's worth spending half a day exploring.
This is the branch of the Metropolitan Museum, which specializes in medieval art and architecture and has many collections. Many building elements from five monasteries in France are rebuilt here, brick by brick, to recreate the glory of the Middle Ages. All donated by the Rockefeller family.
The Monastery Museum is a branch of the Metropolitan Museum. When we bought the tickets, the conductor told us that the tickets could be exchanged for free within three days. This branch of the Monastery Museum has exhibition themes of architecture and medieval art, and can also enjoy the beautiful scenery of the Hudson River here.
The greatest feature of this museum is that it is full of the architectural elements of medieval monasteries in Europe. The galleries, roofs, patios and so on are more attractive than the collection in the museum. This is a joint ticket with MET (Metropolitan Museum). The only drawback is that it's a little far from MET, not in central Manhattan, north. But the environment is quiet and elevated, and the view is wide, suitable for a small lunch here after the visit.
The Cloisters Museum is a branch of the Metropolitan Museum of Art. It is no longer necessary to buy tickets to visit the Metropolitan Museum of Art. Museum architecture itself is very artistic, it was founded in the 1930s, is European style. This Museum mainly displays works of art from medieval Europe, which is worth seeing.
