Trivia

The Cloisters Museum

One of the tourist attractions in Upper Manhattan is The Cloister Museum, which is part of The Metropolitan of Art, and brings tourists out of the usual Manhattan core to visit the northern part of the city. This museum is devoted to the art and architecture found in medieval Europe, and many architectural designs can be found here that is reminiscent of this time. Located in Fort Tryon Park of Upper Manhattan, The Cloisters Museum overlooks the Hudson River, and features almost five thousand works of art from the 12th to 15th Century. The Cloisters began back in the early 1900s as a personal exhibition of a collection of art from the avid collector, George Grey Barnard.

In 1925, The Metropolitan Museum of Art, with the help of John D. Rockefeller, acquired Bernard's collection and added similar pieces to create The Cloister Museum, which now offers a plethora of works of art. Not only can visitors experience European medieval architecture when they visit the museum, they can also view manuscripts, stained glass, metalwork, ivories, and tapestries, including the world-famous unicorn tapestries.[4]
