Make like a monk and get medieval
…as you explore the Cloisters and solve mysteries like a latter-day Brother Baskerville. You’ll tackle tricky clues among the breathtaking architecture that dates from the 12th through the 15th century and the nearly 3,000 works of art, dating from the 9th to the 16th century.
You’ll discover how a fearless slayer gives a dragon a bellyache, take a ladder to heaven or fall into the mouth of hell, learn why dead princes sleep with dogs, find a frog hiding near a famous unicorn, and count how many times Jesus goes to hell. In good weather, relax in garden retreats filled with plants and herbs used in the Middle Ages and take in the spectacular views of the Hudson River.
If visiting the Cloisters has been on your bucket list, a hunt is the perfect opportunity to journey through one of upper Manhattan’s most unusual treasures.
