The outside grounds are great for a nice fall wall in the garden. The museum is kept up well,with many volunteers throughout.the museums gift store has some nice items. The exhibits rotate during the year.

Even though the museum is very nice, what kept me coming here is the trails outside and the gardens. I used to bring my baby on his stroller for walks around the asphalt road. Now that he is older we love going into the woods and explore the trails. During the week, if you go to visit the grounds is... More

To avoid crowds on the Saturday after Thanksgiving, I went to the Nassau County Museum of Art to see “China Then and Now.” (On view through March 8, 2015.) The exhibit includes a few ancient statues, a large collection of blue & white porcelains, beautiful ink paintings by Liu Dan, and examples of contemporary Chinese art. If you are in... More

The grounds are reason enough to visit this delightful gem from a time goneby....gorgeous sculptures dot the many acres of walking trails and the parking is free and ample. I am a fan of art museums and attend all their exhibits, most of them carefully organized and curated. I am simply amazed that so few people attend this cultural jewel....I... More

This museum is very small, but the exhibits are excellent. There are interesting modern sculpture outside on the pretty grounds. Inside volunteers give tours of exhibits, if desired. There are always major traveling exhibits you would expect to find at larger museums. I have also heard the occasional lecture which are always excellent. I saw that another reviewer was disappointed... More

In 1919 Henry Clay Frick of Pittsburgh and U.S.Steel fame, purchased this estate as a gift to his son and daughter in law. That’s what I was after: I wanted to see the mansion, especially since I knew there was a guided tour of the mansion on Saturdays. It is currently a park full with modern sculptures and the mansion... More

Forty-five minutes from the museum capitol of the world is another spot for those local residents who don't want the fuss or expense of schlepping into Manhattan when they have the urge for a museum experience. Capitalizing on this need, the Nassau County Museum of Art has a certain Manhattanesque pretentiousness. Exhibits feature big names like Andy Warhol and Peter... More

Have been here when the temporary exhibits were great, and at other times when they were more ordinary. Beautiful grounds and convenient. Permanent exhibits are generally not as interesting as the temporary ones. Nice, low key museum

This was my initial visit. I wandered the extensive grounds: the grounds contain 20 or so sculptures. A few were fascinating, some interesting and some I just didn't get. Perhaps my favorite work was the oddly named "Wood Duck." A large, hanging metal disc that reflect it's image in the pond above which it hands. (Photo below). Inside you move... More
