NEW YORK (AP) — Six medieval stained glass windows from England's historic Canterbury Cathedral will be displayed at a branch of New York's Metropolitan Museum of Art.

The windows will go on view next Tuesday at The Cloisters.

It will be first time that the glass panels have left the cathedral since they were created in the years 1178 to 1180.

They were removed during restoration of cathedral walls.

The exhibit will include an interactive panorama of the Canterbury Cathedral.

The Cloisters focuses on the art and architecture of medieval Europe.

Canterbury Cathedral is part of a World Heritage Site as well as a house of worship.
