Home to an outstanding collection of medieval stained glass, The Cloisters Museum in New York has released a number of films as part of the celebration of its 75th anniversary. These films include clips of the construction of The Cloisters; the sources of the objects, artworks and materials; and a guide to the collection by the former director, Phillipe de Montebello. They also offer a behind-the-scenes look into The Cloisters, and explore recent updates at the museum, including the switch from candlelight to modern lighting, increasingly full galleries and updated displays, and improved windows and protection for the artworks.

The films have been posted online and can be viewed here.
