This day trip by deluxe motorcoach to two of the premier museums in the country has been rescheduled to Wednesday, May 16 to be able to view The Costume Institute’s spring 2018 exhibition that will be taking place at both museum locations. The exhibition will feature a dialogue between fashion and medieval art as well as examine fashion’s ongoing engagement with the devotional practices and traditions of Catholicism. Serving as the cornerstone of the exhibition, papal robes and accessories from the Sistine Chapel sacristy, many of which have never been seen outside The Vatican, will be on view.

The Cloisters Museum and Gardens is located in Fort Tryon Park overlooking the Hudson
River. It is a branch of the Met devoted to the art, architecture and gardens of medieval Europe.
The Cloisters provide an evocative setting for more than 2,000 exceptional artworks from the
12th through the 15th century.
The Cloisters is also known for its three unique gardens whose design and plantings are based
on documents and works of art from the Middle Ages. Enjoy a guided tour of the Cloisters
museum with special focus on the gardens.
The Metropolitan Museum of Art on Fifth Avenue in New York City is one of the world’s largest and most important art museums. Housing an enormous permanent collection “The Met” with its tall columns and windows, immense stairways and fountains, looks like it could be an emperor’s palace. Time at the museum will be on your own with time for lunch at the café. Pssssssst! Be sure to visit the Cantor Roof Garden for a drink and a view of Central Park.
