Virtual Visit to a Museum of Medieval Art

Museum lovers will find The Metropolitan Museum of Art’s second location—The Met Cloisters atop a hill in the northern tip of Manhattan, at the end of long, winding wooded pathways, with stunning views across the Hudson River to the Palisades. During the Middle Ages, cloisters were places to reflect and recharge. This museum of medieval art takes its cue from these tranquil spaces. Visiting The Cloisters is like traveling through time: medieval architecture is incorporated into a modern building built to evoke the Middle Ages. Visitors will discover that the so-called “dark ages” were actually a bright period of innovation, imagination, and creativity. The virtual site invites online visitors to linger and explore three paths through The Cloisters: The Builders’ Tale, The Gardeners’ Tale, and The Artists’ Tale. They might even catch a glimpse of a magical creature—the elusive unicorn.
