Castle Treasures

The Architectural Details of the Cloister’s Museum

The Cloisters, part of the Metropolitan Museum of Art, lets museum goers experience the art of the Medieval (and Renaissance) periods firsthand. This slideshow looks at a forgotten aspect of this museum — the architectural details of the building, which was assembled in pieces from Europe in the 1930s. It’s more castle than traditional museum. In this photo essay, we take a closer look at some of these architectural treasures.
