Spend Memorial Day in Northern Manhattan in lush Fort Tryon Park at The Cloisters Museum and Gardens, the branch of The Metropolitan Museum of Art devoted to the art and architecture of medieval Europe. A special tour for the whole family introduces visitors to the collection with museum-trained guides. Have a snack outside before at The Trie Café, which is only open from April through October and located in the French medieval Trie Cloister. Baguette anyone?
