Wonderful tour, very well worthwhile if in the area, you get to see the house and studio and there are great photos of Jackson and Lee at work and the floorboards constitute a genuine Pollock!

Jackson and Lee would have loved your reaction. And I'm delighted that you had such an enjoyable visit. Please come see us again next time you're on this side of the pond! More

If you are in East Hampton, you must visit Jackson Pollock's house and studio! The setting is just beautiful - we saw some deer in his enormous front yard. You can walk right into his studio and all through his home, which is in the exact same condition as it was when his wife died. All the furniture and art... More

This special place is the former home of two great American artists. The home is filled with art and the belongings that they lived with while they created. The studio actually has the droppings of the Jackson Pollack paintings.

The studio is an experience not to miss. The house is full of art from both of them. Check out the electronic board by the kitchen with all their art, a real awakening to the talent of both these artists. The tour is under an hour. Walking on the floor with his spattered paint was a kick. The staff does... More

Not a single Pollock painting in sight. Perhaps one of the worst museum's I've visited. Save the $5 entry fee!

I'm so sorry you didn't enjoy your visit. Evidently you somehow missed seeing the several works on paper by Pollock, as well as the original painting by him that's on permanent display. I hope you'll come back and look again. I'd be happy to give you a personal tour! More

I had low expectations about the tour at the Jackson Pollock-Krasner house, as I am not a fan of abstract art. I was truly educated by what I saw and heard. I am so glad I visited this historic site. My perspective was broadened and enriched!

If you are a true art lover a visit to the Pollack-Krasner house is a must see. You will visit Pollack's studio which is virtually untouched since his death. It's a very special place that is well worth a visit. Call ahead to check on hours.

I loved getting the chance to walk in the studio in which Jackson painted. To actually see the floor of the studio where he did his drip paintings See picture attached! It was wonderful to go back in time when the very influential artists of the 20th century lived in this East Hampton community. The view of the water from... More

This place was an unexpected treat. They have left it pretty much as it was when lived and worked in. The staff is very helpful and helped guide me to the nearby graveyard where many artists are buried. Worth the trip.
