Located in Fort Tryon Park this museum is part of the Metropolitan Museum. The place is highly recommended for art lovers and not only. It is a good location where you can spend a day of relaxation. Although it was built during the 30's the museum looks like it has been constructed during the middle ages and it has the feel like hundreds of years have passed over it.

The structure itself recreates the details of the 15th-century monasteries. The location of the museum is also a splendid one, in a bucolic park overlooking the Hudson River, quite romantic. The place houses pieces from the MET medieval art and architecture collections which goes well with the overall look of the building. In love with the view John D. Rockefeller bought the place and donated it to the MET and also included the tract across the river so it would keep the grounds of the museum pristine. There are many famous masterpieces worth checking out but don't forget to inspect the 16th century Hunt of the Unicorn tapestry.
