"Fun with the Family"

For young knights and fair princesses, this medieval monastery is a time-travel trip to the days of yore. A branch of the Metropolitan Museum of Art reconstructed from parts of four European cloisters, it features the exquisite sixteenth-century Unicorn Tapestries, along with other medieval masterpieces. In September, a family festival brings forth jugglers, jesters, and jousting knights on horseback.

"Lovely but not for kids"

This is really more a respite for harrassed adults who dream of retreating to a different time and slower pace. In my pre-kid days, I took time off from my banking job downtown, retiring here with a sketchbook to exercise my right brain for a change.

An older more studious teenager, may enjoy the medieval collection of the Metropolitan musuem being presented in context of these imported cloisters, but I think he/she would have to be a pretty rare bird.
