The museum originally belonged to William Cullen Bryant and was also the former Frick estate. It contains a permanent collection of Tiffany paintings, plus borrowed exhibits from world-class galleries and museums. There are 35 sculptures in the 145 acres of garden. There is also a formal garden where weddings are held.

This is a neighborhood gem. It is a lovely museum on beautiful grounds of the North Shore of Long Island. The sculpture gardens are impressive. The collections are always changing and are always interesting. Worth the visit. I once saw William Wegman and he had brought two of his dogs!

There was a nice garden with roses, lavender and all kinds of pretty flowers blooming, and an impressive sculpture garden. Lots of well-maintained fields to have a picnic on the grounds if you choose to do so. Did not see any cafe or place to eat, so don't go here hungry. But there were only two floors of art, with...

Last weekend my husband and I made a trip to this beautiful and tranquil treasure on Long Island's North Shore. The exhibit was of 'A Garden Party', art of all media relating to the title - sculpture, murals, photos, garments and more. This museum is really a shift away from the day to day; it's hidden in a sculpture-filled oasis,... More

We went for Peter Max's exhibit which was great. I would suggest looking on their website for their exhibits. It is a great location in the spring and summer and fall weather.

The building and grounds are worth the visit even if the exhibits are not particularly interesting. The nature trails are extensive and scenic and make for a delightful summer day, There is no charge for using the trails. The museum fee is overpriced unless it is something you are particularly interested in.

Enjoyed this museum very much. They had a thoughtful, cohesive show on post modernism. Small venue, but they make each piece count. Lovely grounds to walk or just relax. The day we went was very hot, but I hope to return in the spring to enjoy another show and the art on the grounds.
