Facts about the cloisters museum?

Hi there,

The Cloisters is a specialized branch of the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York City. Its collection is of Medieval European artworks, and it is geographically separate from the main site of the Metropolitan Museum of Art. Many facts about the Cloisters and its collections can be found at the Metropolitan Museum's website, <http://www.metmuseum.org/visit/visit-the-cloisters>.

As well as the Wikipedia entry for the Museum: <http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Cloisters>

The Metropolitan Museum of Art's website also has pages devoted to publications by the Museum, where you may find the book "A Walk through the Cloisters", giving introductory information about the site. This book appears as a primary result when searching the METpublications with "Cloisters" as a keyword, and brings up a few other publication results about the Cloisters that might interest you.

These results may also be available in a library near you. You can find them through Wordlcat.org at: <http://www.worldcat.org/title/walk-through-the cloisters/oclc/5029042&referer=brief_results>. This is a great website to discover library materials on subjects across the world, or to locate anything that might be at your local library for use.

If you like, many travel and tourism websites also provide site reviews and other general information about visiting the Cloisters:

Where do museums get the objects they have on display?

Museums get their objects in a variety of ways. Many are purchased for the museum's permanent collection. Others are donated to the museum for particular exhibits or for the collection. Still others are loans from other institutions or wealthy collectors. Loans rarely happen in the general collection, and are much more common for specific special exhibits.

What is the importance of a museum?

Well, museums have importance for people who enjoy history, or who are very interested in one particular subject. There are Art museums, Railroad museums, dollhouse museums, and museums devoted to history, or the history of a certain area. There are many, many other types as well.

For people who love paintings by very popular artists, but are too poor to buy a painting, Art museums are probably the only chance they will have to see an original... Picasso, for example.

Museums are a popular tourist activity. When you go to a new state or a new country, seeing some of the history pictured or described at a museum is interesting and even fun. I have been to visit a couple of large dams, and seeing the historical information about how the dams were built was fascinating to me.

That said, obviously all museums aren't going to appeal to all people. There are as many types of museums as there are interests, and so... if you like cars, you could go to a car museum. :) If you like sports, you could go to a sports museum (could be called a hall of fame). If you like books, you could go to the library... or, er... many museums display old books and documents. :)

Answer 2: I actually love museums especially when you travel out of your own area. Museums are a treasure trove of history and culture. In Awake magazine 3/8/05 it says in Washington, DC without a doubt, the preeminent center of interest for visitors is the Smithsonian Institution. Because it is not merely one museum-it is a whole collection of museums and centers of knowledge. According to one travel guide the most popular of the Smithsonian facilities is the National Air and Space Museum- the most visited in the world. It has 23 extensive galleries and its exhibits, many hanging from the ceiling, illustrate the history of flight. On display is the Flyer, the very airplane that Orville Wright used for his historic flight at Kitty Hawk, North Carolina, in 1903. Nearby is Charles Lindberg's Spirit of St Louis. Interested in bank notes-the Bureau of engraving and statistics is walking distance away. Over $140 billion worth of money is printed here each year. Nextdoor is the Holocaust Museum, and the National Museum of the American Indian. I visited the Louvre in Paris which is rated second in the world and got to see the tiny, yet amazing Mona Lisa and the Moabite Stone. A week later in Spain I visited the Picasso museum. These are things you read about and the amazing history contained in them, but when you actually get to visit and see for yourself, you are in AWE!!!!! Plan a museum trip, you will not regret it.

There are also museums at the sites where historical people lived, so you can learn more about their lives. There are military museums where you can learn the history of weapons and warfare... or uniform styles. :)
