Set in a lovely park overlooking the Hudson River, the Cloisters are home to the Met’s Medieval art and architecture collections. A path winds through the peaceful grounds to a castle that seems to have survived from the Middle Ages (though it was actually built less than 100 years ago). Be sure to check out the famous Unicorn Tapestries, the 12th-century Fuentidueña Chapel and the Annunciation Triptych by Robert Campin.
Spring is in full bloom—and there are so many things to do in spring with kids! As we pack our coats and gloves away for the season, breathe in some fresh air and stop to smell the flowers (and did we mention your radiators will finally stop clanging??), you’ll find that the city is simply buzzing with great activities.
Looking for inspiration? We’re here to help. See below for our ultimate guide to fun things to do in spring, including zipping down slides at a newly-renovated playground, jumping around on the world’s biggest bounce house, zip-lining through the trees at warp speed in the Bronx and other great stuff! Beyond our delightful list of spring activities, don’t forget to browse our guide to Easter for kids, which includes some pretty sweet holiday events and easter egg hunt opportunities, or our guide to outdoor activities for kids.
