    They have a unicorn's horn and the tapestries to prove it. What more do you want?

Description

The Cloisters in a medieval art museum located in New York City’s Fort Tryon Park. It is a branch of the famed Metropolitan Museum of Art. The name “The Cloisters” comes from the fact that the building is constructed of stone originally used in five French abbeys which was shipped to New York in the early nineteen thirties. The museum houses over five thousand works of medieval art, the most well known being a series of tapestries known as The Hunt of the Unicorn. A complex of gardens planted in traditional medieval style surround the museum and make for a beautiful respite from the busy city below.
