Neue Galerie New York

Stark lines, bright colors and reflections of reality are the themes of these works. Exhibitions are conducted often and the venue is open for private events on rare occasions.

Cooper Hewitt, Smithsonian Design Museum

The Cooper-Hewitt Museum was founded in 1897 by the grandchildren of wealthy New Yorker Peter Cooper. Today, the museum is a branch of the Smithsonian Institution, and it houses one of the world's largest collections of historical and current design. It is also the only exhibition space in America devoted solely to this subject. The outside of the Upper East Side building, once the residence of Andrew Carnegie, resembles a Georgian country house.

The Met Cloisters

The Cloisters is the medieval outpost of the Metropolitan Museum of Art. Overlooking the Hudson River, it is a deeply relaxing and spiritual place that explores beautiful medieval art. The interlocking cloisters are faithful reconstructions of French monasteries and abbeys. They were erected between 1934 and 1938 on a site offered by John D. Rockefeller Jr. Travel back to the Middle Ages with a visit to the museum, wander through resplendent Gothic chambers, discover solitude and serenity in the Fuentidueña Apse, and sit like a monk at the Chapter House from Notre Dame de Pontaut. The sprawling museum gardens are as beautiful as the chapels and cloisters.
