About Cloisters, The

The Cloisters is the branch of the Metropolitan Museum of Art devoted to Medieval Europe, with a collection of art dating from the 12th through the 15th centuries. Situated in Fort Tryon Park overlooking the Hudson River, the museum's structure incorporates Medieval French cloisters with quadrangles enclosed by covered walkways. The featured gardens are planted according to horticultural information found in Medieval treatises, poetry, garden documents and Medieval works of art.

Interns run gallery workshops with New York City day campers and develop gallery tours, delivered during their last week. The internship provides intensive training sessions on The Cloisters' collection and in museum teaching techniques.


Open to undergraduate and graduate students, as well as recent graduates.
