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

it took us all of ten minutes to see the art and most of the art is as above. there were a few classy, talented pieces (real works of art)on the first floor, we expected to see more of the same, but no. also, not much to see on the 2 floors, so, all in all was a disappointment. I... 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.

What a nice art museum! Neither too small nor overwhelming, it was a comfortable size for an afternoon visit. Paintings on exhibit included an unusually large percentage of interesting, varied, and attractive “post modern” art, some whimsical, some scary, some with unusual perspectives, many with vibrant colors. An excellent docent provided an informative tour of the special exhibitions of Alex... More

This museum is set in a beautiful park and both are great destinations and oases amidst bustling northern Nassau County. Fine exhibits in the museum which will surprise you, great activities for kids, including class trips to make Van Gogh collages, musical performance on the huge, grassy lawns, and walking trails galore. For a small-ish public museum, this is a... More
