Praise From
Our Travelers

I've been a 10 plus year group leader with Friendship Tours & The Ship Shop and wouldn't hesitate to recommend them for day trips, overnights and cruises. We can always be sure that if the "Friendship Family" is involved it will be a organized, safe and enjoyable trip.

Travel by deluxe motorcoach to two of the premiere art museums in the country.

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.

Time at the Cloisters to view 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. Your time at the museum will be on our own with time for lunch at the café. Pssst—Be sure to visit the Cantor Roof Garden for a drink and a view of Central Park.

In addition, a special exhibition will be on view:

Heavenly Bodies: The special exhibition will explore the many intersections between couture and the Catholic Church. At the Met, papal robes from different periods will be displayed with some 50 masterworks on loan from the Sistine Chapel in Vatican City. Fashion designs from the early 20th century to the present will be shown alongside religious artworks in the museum's Medieval and Byzantine galleries, as well as in the galleries of the Cloisters Museum.
