NOTE:  The Cloisters is a branch of the Metropolitan Museum of Art which charges and entrance fee.  If you are a member you will have free admission.  If you are a member at a level that includes guest passes, please ask for one so that we can give it to someone who is not a member.  If you are not a member you can elect to pay whatever you wish: a few dollars should be sufficient but even a quarter will get you in.

Also remember that there are NO wet media allowed in the building.  You can use any dry medium and activate the color with a water brush that has its own internal reservoir. Bring a stool. There is a cafe in the building where we can have lunch. You can purchase something or bring your own lunch and sit at a table to eat it.
