Created in 1938 as a place for people who want to get the sense of being in a Gothic Medieval building, the Cloisters of the Metropolitan Museum of Art in Upper Manhattan became also an abode for art and nature lovers who want to escape the fuss of New York. The Met Cloisters is a home to an artistic collection, architecture, fashion and gardens from Medieval Europe. This in-app audio guide will navigate you through the most interesting works on display, including paintings, metalwork, costumes, stained glass and sculptures made in the Middle Ages. Feel yourself in a medieval castle as you walk through corridors and halls made out of sections of French medieval monasteries. Hear the story behind one of the greatest Medievel painting in America, the Mérode Altarpiece, exhibited in the hall where objects of domestic space of the 15th century that you see on the painting are featured as real things. Scrutinize the Casket with Scenes from Romances dated 1310 and find Cupid in the most unexpected scene showing assault on a castle. The gardens enrich the museum experience - all the plants are those that would have been grown in the Medieval Period in Europe and make you feel as though you are at the Herbology class at Hogwartz. Explore Medieval art, history and horticulture woven together at the Met Cloisters curated by your personal audio guide.
